Biography
Kita Busei was a nanga-style painter who studied with the leading figure, Tani Buncho (1763-1841), and accompanied his teacher on travels around western Japan to record the artworks held by temples and shrines, to be collated as Sh?ko jisshu. Busei also studied Kano-school and Rinpa techniques, and provided many illustrations for novels (unusually for an artist outside the ukiyo-e school).

In Japanese culture a person's family name comes first, so this artist's name is written Kita Busei.
