The Japanese painter Kitagawa Sosetsu (active 16391650) flourished during the early Edo period (16151868), a time in which renewed energy was infused into the arts. His brilliant compositions of floral themes show an indebtedness to his predecessor Tawaraya Sotatsu, whose painting style was later recognized as the foundation of the Rinpa school, which is associated with bold graphic representations of natural forms.
