Biography  
Ranko Nakai


Biography from Bonhams New York

Ranko Nakai was born in Osaka, in 1766.  Ranko was known as a poet, tea master, and painter.

Though his work has affinities with the Maruyama-Shijo school, he was not affiliated with any particular atelier.  He is said to have been a student of Shitomi Kangetsu (1747-1797), who himself was considered rather eclectic in his style, studying under Tsukioka Settei, as well as espousing techniques found in ancient Chinese and Japanese painting.
