'Remote Landscape' by Tanomura Chokunyu (1814~1907)

Chokunyu was the step son of Tanomura Chikuden and he studied Chikuden's work. Chokunyu started to learn from Chikuden when he was 9 years old, and Chikuden found his talent and adopted him. Chokunyu learned Confucianism from Tsunoda Kyuka and Chinese poetry from Hirose Gyokuso. He also learned and got skills of Omotesenke Tea Ceremony, Kodo (Japanese art of appreciating incence) and Kenjutsu (the art of the sword). When he was 20 years old, he moved to Osaka with Chikuden.

After Chikuden has died, Chokunyu was touring around Kyoto and Osaka. When he turned 27, he founded SHISHAKOSAIGINSHA, he's got disciples over 300. Chokunyu took over Chikuden's will as he wanted to spread the middle grade tea ceremony and worked on it so hard. In 1880, he became the principal of Kyoto Painting School. After he quited this position, he opened his private painting school at his house. Chokunyu died when he was 95 years old.
