Art History

The painter Kitagawa Sōsetsu flourished during Japans Edo period (16151868), a time in which renewed energy was infused into the arts through a campaign initiated in the ancient capital city, Kyoto. Not much biographical or professional information is known about Sōsetsu, other than the fact that he inherited the honorary title hokkyō (given to the master of a school or shop) from his predecessor Tawaraya Sōtatsu (died ca. 1640). Sōsetsus painting style perpetuated Sōtatsus, and it is most instructive to discuss the work of the follower in terms of that of his master.
