Gekko
1859-1920
Ukiyoe painter. Also referred to as Osai, Meikyosai, Kabansai, and others as Betsugo. He didn’t have any particular mentor but was affected by Kikuchi Yosai’s painting style. In the early Meiji Period, he worked on the drawing for ceramics or lacquer wear for export as well as the illustration for newspaper or magazine. He also produced the Japanese-style painting, some of which were exhibited. He belonged to the Nihon Bijutsuin founded in 1898, and one of his pieces was given the third place at the 6th Bunten Exhibition in 1912.
