Hatta Koshū was a native of Kyoto, who studied with Maruyama Ōkyo and was known for his figures as well as his depictions of flowers and fish, which he executed with a soft, delicate touch and great skill with his brush. He was also a book illustrator and was honoured with the title ‘hokkyō’, the third-highest rank awarded to artists in the Edo period.
