Zôtaku was a samurai of the Matsuyama fief and a localy famous painter of bamboo.
“Zôtaku wielded the brush with extraordnary vigor, often showing only a part of the bamboo within a large scroll format. His warrior spirit shines through his paintings, giving them a unique and dynamic boldness.”(Addiss)
