Mishima, Shoso (1856-1928) View Works

Shoso Mishima was a nihonga painter and print designer active during the Meiji period. Born in Edo, Shoso began his artistic training in the Maruyama-Shijo School painting. As the student of Yosai Kikuchi, Shoso focused principally on figural, historical scenes. He also produced kacho-e, or “bird and flower pictures,” and a ceiling painting within the Imperial Palace. Shoso’s introduction to illustration and print design came through Seitei Watanabe, a friend of Yosai Kikuchi. Shoso became an active kuchi-e artist, working mainly with the publisher Shun’yodo His works appeared in fourteen issues of the monthly literary magazine Bungei Kurabu (Literary Club) and numerous books. In addition to kuchi-e, Shoso completed a series of floral prints, as well some kaika-e, or “enlightenment pictures,” and children’s prints. Shoso was an avid admirer of the ukiyo-e master Sharaku and amassed an impressive collection of Sharaku’s rare designs. Sadly, Shoso’s collection was lost in a fire.
