Ishikawa Komei was born at Asakusa in Edo (Tokyo) into a family of miya-bori (sculptors of wood carvings for Shinto shrines). He trained in Kano-style painting under Kano Sosen, and studied ivory carving under Kikukawa Masamitsu. In 1891, he became Professor of the Sculpture Department at the Tokyo Art School. Appointed an Imperial Court Artist and member of the Art Committee of the Imperial Household, he is renowned as being one of the greatest of all Japanese sculptors.
