Kitao Masayoshi

Kitao Masayoshi, 1790 to 1824, was a Japanese painter and draftsman specialist in Ukiyo-e, born in Edo in 1764. Ukiyo-e artists may be organized into schools, which consist of a founding artist and those artists who were taught by or strongly influenced by him. Artists of the Osaka school are united both stylistically and geographically. Not all of these artists designed woodblock prints, and some ukiyo-e artists had more than one teacher, and others are not known to be associated with any particular school. Not too much is known about his personal life but we do know that he studied under the Master Kitao Shigemasa and left a legacy of some very, very fine art
