About the artist

Seiko’s work is regarded as some of the most delicate and naturalistic of the kacho-e, or bird and flower genre. His history is somewhat mysterious. Some scholars believe that Seiko may actually be an additional artist name for the renowned kacho-e painter, Seitei (or Shōtei), as they both produced works with very similar motifs and compositions, as well as a comparable level of refinement and skill. However, there is little concrete evidence to support this idea, despite the visual similarities between the two artists. Nevertheless, Seito’s work stands as some of the most accomplished nature studies of the period, especially those that were produced in the square kakuban format.
