Maruyama Okyo is a charismatic Japanese painter. He is also known as the “founder of Japanese sketch painting.
Many of his works are characterized by the fact that he did not paint what he saw, but reconstructed them based on his sketches. Maruyama Okyo also studied the Western method of shading. He did not paint the shadows cast by objects, but only the dark “shadows” that make objects appear three-dimensional, and he skillfully used these shadows to express a three-dimensional effect.
