buddhist painting Japan.
Priest Taigan, wasin the latter period of Edo, came to Kyoto to revive the world of buddhist painting. in Kyoto
he learned buddhist painting ,and actually he began to paint with his pupils.
One of his pupil is Tamura Soryu. Later he became a professor of the first oil pinting department in kyoto Art
College.
