His pesudonym was Kohōgan

Hakushinsai Eirin
Hakushinsai is a pseudonym.
Real name: Kanō Eirin
Supposed to be the 13th generation of the Kyōto Kanō School painters. Kyōto Kanō School gradulally lost its influence, but temporally revived in the in the time of the 9th generation at the end of Edo period. Continued until the 12th generation Eisho
