    Kano Tanrei was a Japanese-style painter. Born in Yamagata prefecture, his real name was Araki Jotaro. He went to Edo to study under Kikukawa Ensai and Tachibana Moritoshi, who were the pupils of the Kajiyabashi branch of the Kano school. He joined the Nihon Bijutsu Kyokai and received many high prizes.

    He also founded the Kano-kai (Kano Association) with Okakura Shusui (1869-circa 1950) and Oka Fuho (1869-1940), devoting himself to the revival of the Kano School. After this he was permitted to prefix his name with Kano in Taisho 5 (1916).
