Yosa Buson. 1716-1783

Around the age of seventeen, Buson went to Edo and studied painting and haiku. After his haiku teacher's death in 1742, Buson wandered around the eastern provinces fro more than ten years, later settling in Kyoto. Buson is now considered one of the greatest artists in the literati style, and second only to Bashō in the haiku tradition. Buson's verses as well as his painting show the warmth and brilliance of his vision of humanity and the natural world.
