Choki (fl. c.1781 - 1813 )

Choki Eishosai was an ukiyo-e artist active around the turn of the 19th century. While little is known about his early life, Choki studied under Sekien Toriyama (1712-1788). He focused primarily on bijin-ga, or “pictures of beautiful women.,” but also designed kacho-e, or “bird and flower prints,” and books illustrations. His works may be signed Choki, Eishosai, or Shiko.
