About the artist

Teisai Hokuba (蹄斎北馬, 1771 - 1844) was one of the earliest and foremost pupils of Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849). From about 1800-12 he is known to have produced illustrations for more than sixty 'kyoka' poetry anthologies and novels. The rest of his career was given over to painting hanging scrolls of beautiful women, typically with the figure done in colourful detail and the landscape in an ink-wash style adopted from the Edo Kano school.
