Taiseki was born in Shimamura, Haguri District (currently Ichinomiya City). His real name is Yutaka. He studied under Mori Hanitsu (1848-1940) [Ichinomiya City Museum], who was from the same hometown, and his cousin.
He first studied flower and bird painting under the great Mori Kinseki (1843-1921) [Museum of the Imperial Collections], and later studied animal painting under Ohashi Suiseki [Museum of Fine Arts, Gifu]. He was given the “seki – 石” from Kinseki. His prowess for painting tigers was honed through his studies with Suiseki.
His realism skills were well-received, and his pieces were also purchased by the Ministry of the Imperial Household. He is also held in the Ichinomiya City Museum [link to their tiger painting].
He also had a close friendship with Yamamoto Baiso (1848-1921) of Handa [LACMA link].
