They were born in the same year, 1716, from humble backgrounds—Ito Jakuchu, the son of a vegetable wholesaler, was born in Kyoto and Buson Yosa was born to farmers in neighboring Osaka. Jakuchu grew to be a master of ink painting, famed for his animal depictions, while Buson would become known for his landscapes as well as his poetry. Both would be leave an indelible mark on the world of 18th century art.
