Baisô was Nanga painter, born in Aichi-ken (Owari, Nagoya prefecture), who studied under Nukina Kaioku (1778-1863). Together with Kodama Katei (1841-1913) and Yoshitsugu Haizan (1846-1915), Baiso was referred to as one of the 'Three Great Painters' in Japan. Baisô showed with Nihon Bijutsu Kyôkai and others and was a winner of many prices. In 1907 he showed with Bunten and served with them as a juror after 1912.
