THE PROPERTY OF BARONESS THYSSEN
Yasui Hochu (1857-1922) began to study lacquer in 1868 under Uematsu Homin (1846-1899). A contemporary of Shibata Zeshin (1807-1891) and the carver Ishikawa Komei (1852-1913), Yasui Hochu became an independent artist in 1878, working for the Seikosha and Kiryu Kosho Kaisha companies.
Yasui Hochu and Ishikawa Komei collaborated with other artists to make an important shodana [cabinet] decorated with deer, probably exhibited at the National Industrial Exhibition in 1890. He exhibited two works at the Japan-British Exhibition, London, in 1910. In 1920, Yasui Hochu participated in the decoration of the Meiji Shrine in Tokyo.
