Hokuba (1771 - 1844 )

Hokuba Teisai was one of the earliest and foremost pupils of Hokusai. From about 1800 to 1812 Hokuba produced illustrations for more than sixty kyoka poetry anthologies and novels. He then shifted his focus to painting, typically hanging scrolls depicting beautiful women with colorful detail set against a landscape done in a ink-wash style adopted from the Kano school.
