Object literature: Eishi Hosoda was born into the Hosoda samurai family in 1756. Living in Edo, Eishi began his career in painting, studying first in the Kano school, followed by Bunryusai. Around the age of thirty, Eishi began working in ukiyo-e woodblocks. Defined by aristocratic elegance, Eishi’s women appear tall, lean and graceful. It is said that his prints were so highly regarded in their time that even the imperial family sought to own them. His paintings are considered masterpieces of the Japanese ukiyo-e school.
