It was a farmers son named OkyO, trained in his youth to paint in the Chinese manner, who was first bold enough to adopt as a canon what his predecessors had only admitted under rare exceptions, the principle of an exact imitation of nature.
OkyO rose into notice about 1775, and a number of pupils flocked to his studio in ShijO Street, KiOto (whence ShijO school).
Ozui and Ojyu, the sons of OkyO, painted in the style of their father, but failed to attain great eminence.
It remains only to allude to the European school, if school it can be called, founded by Kokan and Denkichi, two contemporaries of OkyO.
