Sakai Hoitsu
Edo Ukiyo-e Woodblock print
Japanese, (1761–1828) Sakai Tadamoto. Kishin Go: Hoitsu, Keikyo Dojin, Kuzento, Nison'an, Niwabyoshi, Oson, Toryu, Ukaan.
Rimpa painter, born in Edo, as the second son of Lord Sakai of Himeji Castle in Harima Province. Went to Kyoto to study. His eclectic painting education began at the Kano school, then at the ukiyo-e school under Utagawa Toyoharu, to Watanabe Nangaku of the Maruyama school, So Shiseki of the nanga school, and finally to the Rimpa style. He also became well versed in the classics, poetry, and the No. In 1797 he became a Buddhist priest, and spent the last 21 years of his life in seclusion, painting and studying the life and works of the artist Korin. He published two influential books - "Korin Hyakuzu" (1815) and "Kenzan Iboku Gafu" (1823), both books of woodcuts after paintings by Korin and Kenzan, as well as a book of his own work, entitled "Oson Gafu." His style owes something to the realism of Okyo, but much more to Korin's decorative manner, which he revived: a liquid style, with the dramatic contrasts of Korin combined with particularly clear colors, elegant and refined.
