    Mori Ippo was a Shijo painter. Born and living in Osaka, he studied under Mori Tetsuzan (1775-1841), who later adopted him. Around 1850, he executed some of the paintings for the fusuma of the Imperial Palace, Kyoto. He was an accomplished painter of birds, but even more so of landscapes, such as the painting offered here; as well as producing scenes of Osaka life in an unconventional manner.
