1787—1867. An ukiyo-e painter and print artist, he worked at first for his father, and then studied under Nanrei and Hokkei. He was influenced by Utamaro and Hokusai. During a period which was witnessing the manifest artistic decline of ukiyo-e, a period without firstrate artists or critics, Eizan, along with Toyokuni, was among the leading exponents of bijin-ga. His motifs were primarily standing female figures in a tranquil atmosphere.
