Product Description

Ito Jakuchu (1716-1800)

The son of a rich grocer, Ito Jakuchu was financially free and able to devote his life to painting. His paintings were ignored until he was rediscovered in the late 19th century. His birds and flowere were painted with realism that preceded and at times exceeded that of Okyo. With decorative arrangements and a sense of color and design, Ito shows the influence of the Korin art style, but he was also known as a self-study artist.
