Literati Painting

Literati painting, known in Japanese as bunjinga or nanga, is a type of ink painting popular in China, Korea, and Japan. The subject matter includes landscape and selected plants. Literati painting became popular in Japan in the Tokugawa period, thanks to imported paintings and woodblock-printed painting manuals from China. For more explanation of literati painting in Japan see here.

To see reproductions of literati paintings by Japanese artists active in the early twentieth century, see for example works of Yamaoka Beika (1867-1913) and Sakuma Tetsuen (1850-1921).
