Three sweetfish in a stream

Maruyama Ōkyo was a Japanese artist in the late 18th century. He studied art from China, Japan, and the West. His paintings have shown a personal style of Western naturalism mixed with Eastern decorative design. Maruyama advocated ‘painting from life’ and his style and methods influenced artists from the Lingnan region in late 19th century and early 20th century.
