Scope and Contents:
The map is a pictorial view of Tokyo, including Tokyo Bay and the Sumida River. It includes watercraft, dwellings and other structures, and townspeople.
Biographical / Historical:
Keisai (also known as Kuwagata Shōshin) was an ukiyo-e painter, illustrator, and printmaker. When he became official painter to the Lord of Tsuyama in 1797, he developed a new semi-Kanō genre. Kanō refers to the leading school of Japanese painters in semi-Chinese style from the mid 15th century onward. It was also the official art school of the Edo shogunate. Keisai made his name by a panoramic view of Edo, which is considered to be Keisai's most representative work. According to a label on the item, a copy of this pictorial map of Edo was presented to Lord Tokugawa in 1810.
