Object literature: Sakai Hōitsu was a Japanese painter of the Rinpa school in the late Edo period. He is known for having revived the style and popularity of Ogata Korin. Hōitsu's style shows elements of the realism of ukiyo-e, but resembles particularly the decorative style of Ogata Kōrin, which Hōitsu took major steps to revive.
His works are displayed in numerous museums around the world.
