Nagasawa Roshū


Nagasawa Roshū was a painter of the late Edo period. He was adopted by the Maruyama School painter Nagasawa Rosetsu (1754-1799) who created many large-scale paintings. Maruyama Ōkyo (1733-1795) was famous for his yūrei paintings without legs. It is easy to imagine that Nagasawa Rosetsu and his successor Roshū would thus have followed suit and produced ghost paintings in a similar style.
