OSAKA -- American art enthusiast Joe Price, known for his collection of works by Edo-period painter Ito Jakuchu, died Thursday at his home in California. He was 93.

Unbound by tradition or the idea of artistic pedigree, Price used his own American sensibility to collect Japanese paintings, helping to bring fresh attention to the 18th-century artist, widely known as Jakuchu.
