Yashima Gakutei

Japanese, (ca. 1786–1868)
Yashima Gakutei was a Japanese artist and poet who was a pupil of both Totoya Hokkei and Hokusai. Gakutei is best known for his kyōka poetry and surimono works. Gakutei is noted for the quality in his wood printing works and for his general contributions to the body of ukiyo-e artwork. Specifically, critics have noted his technical prowess and precision, his skill in embossing, and that his specialization in surimono (a genre of Japanese woodblock print privately commissioned for special occasions) exceeded that of his teacher, Hokkei.
