- Occupation or Type
Though Kawamura Kihô was a year older than Kawamura Bunpô, he became Bunpô's pupil and adopted son. Like his mentor, he published books that could serve as models for amateur painters. Both men drew from a wide range of stylistic sources, including the naturalism of the Maruyama-Shijô school that was so prevalent in Kyoto, as well as imported Chinese printed books. Kihô's drawing is characterized by a light touch and a wry humanity, evoking a sense of warm familiarity.
