Yosa Buson

Yosa  Buson

Yosa Buson (1716-1783) was one of Japan's greatest haiku poets during the Edo period. His art is technically accomplished and sensitive to aesthetic elements in a large landscape. Although Buson's writing owes a debt to his forefather Basho as well as classical Chinese literature, the poems are entirely his own in scope and sensuality. Buson was a true interdisciplinary maverick and one of the founders of the haiga, a miniature watercolor or black-and-white picture framed by a haiku.
