Undoubtedly the most important development in art during the early Edo period was the rise of the Sotatsu school of decorative painting which succeeded in revivifying Yamato-e, at this time all but moribund. The new form of art was the product of the combined talents of the gifted artist Hon'ami Koetsu (1558-1637) and the great painter Tawaraya Sotatsu (first half of 17th ccntury). These two distinguished men grew up during the Momoyama period and had absorbed the exuberant spirit of Momoyama decorative art. In the early Edo period they established a school based on Yamato-e, to which they added new decorative elements. The movement they founded produced some of Japan's greatest works of art (Pls. 122-26) and influenced not only painting but also lacquerware, pottery, and other branches of the applied arts throughout the Edo period. Ogata Korin (1658-1716), who succeeded Sotatsu and took over the leadership of the school, came to be the outstanding decorative painter of Edo times (Pls. 127-29). Like Koetsu, he demonstrated great versatility and was gifted in the craft of maki-e lacquerwork and handicraft design generally. Korin's younger brother Kenzan (1663-1743) was famous as a potter, but he also painted pictures of great originality and taste. A century later, Sakai Hoitsu (1761-1828), an ardent admirer of Korin's painting, continued to work in the same style and painted some exquisite masterpieces (Pl. 131).
