Eisho Biography

Hosoda Eisho was active from 1780 - 1800 as an ukiyo-e painter and print designer.  Details of his life are unknown except that, along with Hosoda Eiri, he was a pupil of Hosoda Eishi.  This artist produced only a few known paintings, but many prints specializing in okubi-e and bijinga.  His designs are thought to be less  idyllic and more robust and lifelike than Eishi's.
