Korin, Ogata


Born in 1658 in Kyoto; died in 1716. Japanese painter and master of lacquer technique.

Ogata Korin was greatly influenced by the yamatoe tradition of painting. His works (the scene from Ishe Monagatari, early 18th century, the Museum Yamato Bunkakan, Nara; the screens The Irises, second half of the 17th century, the Nezu Art Museum, Tokyo) are marked by decorative composition and an attempt to convey the sensory and material elements of nature.
