Originally these paintings were painted directly in an album. After breaking up the album they were pasted on a screen. After dismounting the screen they were rehabilitated as a group of album drawings.
Probably Suichô was a painter from Edo who like this other mysterious artist Dôzan remained completely unknown, except for a number of exquisit drawings (despite their condition).
