Kiyohara Yukinobu was one of the rare women painters affiliated with the Kano school who achieved recognition in her day. Her father was the artist Kusumi Morikage c. Morikage was one of Tan’yu’s most outstanding pupils. Yukinobu lived in Kyoto for most of her life and married another Tan’yu pupil named Kiyohara Hirano Morikiyo. That Yukinobu, her mother, and grandmother were all married to Tan’yu’s pupils is evidence of the strong familial bonds characteristic of the Kano school. Yukinobu’s thematic range was diverse. She was trained in the academic Chinese styles used for painting landscapes, figures, and birds and flowers. This item is in the category “Antiques\Asian Antiques\Japan\Paintings & Scrolls”.
