Sonia,

Not a lot seems to be known about Sekkyō. Apparently, he was active as an artist and printmaker in the 1790's and the first years of the 19th century. According to Laurance P Roberts (in A Dictionary of Japanes Artists, Weatherhill 1976), he was a pupil of Tsutsumi Tōrin and probably a member of the Tsutsumi school. Sekkyō made a few prints of birds, landscapes and figures, and was known for his use of perspective.

Best regards,
Hans Olof
