For Your Interest

Katsukawa, Shunsho (1726-1792) was one of the great ukiyo-e print masters and known for both strength and delicacy of his designs. Little is known of his early life. He came to Edo to study haiku poetry and painting but soon shifted his attention to ukiyo-e. Originally a member of the Torii school he broke away and founded his own more realistic style known as the Katsukawa School. He was the teacher of many ukiyo-e artists, including to name but a few, Shunko, Shunei and Hokusai. His first prints depicted bijin and were influenced by Harunobu however he later began designing his own style of kabuki actors and sumo wrestlers.
