Biography:

Pupil of Hokusai. Roberts gives dates - ca. 1830-40 - that do not agree with the dating on the triptych in the Lyon Collection, #1304. A major Japanese web site lists his dates as unknown.

The curatorial notes from Arizona State University read:

Katsushika Hokui, also known as Fukao Hokui, is something of a mystery. It is known that he was a member of the school of Hokusai, and that he was a painter of birds as well as being an ukiyo-e artist. There are only a handful of known prints by Hokui, which is surprising because they show the polish of a master.
