Roshû was born in Kyôto. He was the pupil and adopted son of his father-in- law Nagasawa Rosetsu. Of not so many pupils of Rosetsu (1754-1799) only Roshû approached first rank. Roshû paintings are quite rare. They pale in comparison to the brilliance, boldness, wit and charm of the better works of Rosetsu.
