Chōki Eishōsai

Japanese, active 1781-1813

Occupation or Type



Chōki, like his senior contemporary Eishi, is one of several artists to specialize in bijin ga in a style that took the oeuvre of Utamaro as its starting point. Chōki shared Utamaro's publisher, the inventive Tsutaya Jūzaburō. Chōki was able to create his own distinct variation of the Utamaro style; his beauties have a certain fresh innocence and propriety.
