Soga Shōhaku

1730 - Jan 30, 1781

Soga Shōhaku was a Japanese painter of the Edo period. Shōhaku distinguished himself from his contemporaries by preferring the brush style of the Muromachi period, an aesthetic that was already passé 150 years before his birth.
Shōhaku's birth name was Miura Sakonjirō. His family was wealthy, but all of his immediate family members died before he reached the age of 18.
