Yamanaka Shinten'o | Painting


Yamanaka Shinten’o was the second son of a prosperous and cultured farming family. He pursued calligraphy studies in Osaka under the renowned calligrapher Shinozaki Shochiku (1781-1851). While studying with Yanagawa Seigan (1781-1859) and Umeda Unpin (1825-1865), he forged friendships with imperial loyalists Rai Miisaburo and Fujimoto Tesseki (1817-1863). Shinten'o retired in 1873 and lived in the Shimogamo area of Kyoto. He also built a large villa in Arashiyama, which became a famous location for literati gatherings.
