About Sotatsu

Tawaraya Sōtatsu (俵屋 宗達, c. 1570 – c. 1640) was a Japanese furniture designer and painter of the Rinpa school.

Sōtatsu is best known for his decorations of calligraphic works by his partner Hon'ami Kōetsu (1558–1637),[1] and his spectacular and highly influential byōbu folding screens, such as National Treasures Wind God and Thunder God[2] and his painting of the Sekiya and Miotsukushi chapters from The Tale of Genji. He also popularized a technique called tarashikomi, in which a second layer of paint is applied before the first layer is dry.[1]

He is also credited with co-founding the Rinpa school of Japanese painting, together with Kōetsu.[3] Rinpa was not strictly a school,[3] but a group of artist directly influenced by Sōtatsu and Kōetsu.[4] Some of the most notable Rinpa artists are Ogata Kōrin (1658–1716), Ogata Kenzan (1663–1743) and Sakai Hōitsu (1761–1828).
