Settai attended the nihonga elective course at Tokyo School of Fine Arts. Exerting a subtle sense of beauty cultivated through studies of traditional painting and the influence of ukiyo-e, Settai proved popular in wide-ranging fields such as book designs, newspaper and magazine illustrations, and stage design for kabuki and shinpa drama. In each case, his works were overflowing with a modern sensibility marked by both a modern and refined atmosphere of Edo and daring and witty designs.
