Nakabayashi Chikuto one of the leading exponents
of Owari Nanga, or literati painting in Nagoya,
despite the fact that he spent many years as
artists in Kyoto. Chikuto began studying painting
with Yamada Kyujo (1747-1793) at age thirteen. In
1795 Chikuto began earning a living as an
independent painter. Remaining loyal to literati
ideals, Chikuto studied Chinese classics and
advocated a return to the brushwork traditions
of Chinese masters. Chikuto's reputations emerged
as early as 1813, when his name appeared in the
literati painting section of Record of Famous
People of Kyoto (Heian jinbutsu shi). In 1838
Chikuto withdrew to his studio in the outskirts
of Kyoto and thereafter led an increasingly
reclusive life. (Michiyo Morioka, in: Literati
Modern, p. 284).
