Sekisô, also known as Sekiyô was a Nanga painter from Handa, in the former province of Owari (now Aichi prefecture). He was the son and pupil of Yamamoto Baisô (1846-1921), who was himself a pupil of Nukina Kaioku (1778-1863). Sekisô ‘decorated’ a lot Inuyama ware, and often collaborated with the famous Owari potter Matsumoto Shigenobu (1864-1950).
