Suzuki Kiitsu (Japanese, 1796–1858) | Morning Glories 朝顏/牽牛花 | early 19th century
Suzuki Kiitsu was a prominent late Edo periodpainter in the Rinpa style, a student and stylistic successor of Sakai Hôitsu.
Kiitsu was originally trained as a dyer of textiles, but later came to study painting under Sakai Hôitsu, and collaborated with Hôitsu on a number of projects. These included the Kôrin hyakuzu ("One Hundred Pictures by Kôrin"), a woodblock-printed book collecting line-drawing reproductions of compositions by Ogata Kôrin (d. 1716), a painter of a few generations prior, after whom the Rinpa style took its name.
