Shotei, Hokuju (1763-1824)

Hokuju was one of the best students of Hokusai. He produced very original landscapes with cubist landforms, stylized clouds and photographic figures. His curiously modern landscapes were apparently influenced by the Western art concept which was very new to his era. Richard Lane wrote about Hokuji, ” … Hokuji was influenced by what little he knew of European art: yet the result must be considered one of the most notable of the Japanese variations upon what were the only dimly apprehended concepts of Western forms”.
