Maruyama Okyo (1733-1795) was a pioneer of bringing together Chinese and other East Asian techniques with the realism of Western naturalism within his Japanese-style painting. Though neither a simple reflection of realism nor naturalistic sketching, Okyo’s work was originally criticized for being overly concerned with realistic portrayals, despite being received well by the general public. Recently, his work has been gaining more recognition as scholars and admirers appreciate the complicated technical skills behind each of his pieces.
