Takahashi Shotei was born in Tokyo, Japan, in 1871 and was adopted as a young child into the Takahashi family and renamed Takahashi Katsutaro. At the age of 9 he was apprenticed to his uncle, Matsumoto Fuko and began studying painting, and whom according to tradition, gave him his art name ÒShoteiÓ a variant of his own surname ÒMatsumotoÓ. Shotei was in his mid-teens when he began to work in the design department of the Imperial Household Agency. He began his artistic training at the Kawabata Painting School, where he studied traditional Japanese painting. He later joined the studio of the famous woodblock print artist Ishikawa Toyonobu, who taught him the techniques of printmaking. ShoteiÕs early works were influenced by the ukiyo-e style, characterized by its use of bold outlines, vivid colors, and intricate details.
