Gakutei   (ca. 1786-1868)

Also Yashima Gakutei.   Ukiyo-e printmaker. Native of Edo, but lived in Osaka in the 1830s. Studied under Tsutsumi Shuei and Iwakubo Hokkei; much influenced by Hokusai.  Also a kyoka poet, putting his own poems on his prints. Known as the adapter from Chinese to Japanese of Hsi-yu Chi (Journey to the West), a 16th-century novel, with illustrations. More famous in Japan as a writer than an artist; popular in his time. A good craftsman, made many excellent surimono and book illustrations. His landscapes of Osaka are quite delicate and decorative.
