"Katsushika Isai (1821-80) was Ukiyo-e painter and printmaker. Born in Edo. Studied under Katsushika Hokusai (1760- 1849), who lived for some time in his house. In the 1860s made several prints designed for sale to the Western market. Specialized in genre painting and portraiture. His style very close to that of Hokusai. (Roberts. Laurence P.
