This spring I wandered through the South East of Gifu Province (Tônô) and while moving on I also did some painting there.

Sekisô, also known as Sekiyô was a Nanga painter from Handa Owari Province (Nowadays Aichi prefecture). He was the son and pupil of Yamamoto Baisô (1846-1921). Baisô, a pupil of Nukina Kaioku (1778-1863), was considered to be one of the three Nanga masters together with Kodama Katei (1841-1913) and Yoshitsugu Haizan (1846-1915).
Sekisô ‘decorated’ a lotInuyamayaki, often cooperation with the famous Owari potter Matsumoto Shigenobu (1864-1950).
