Kono Bairei (幸野楳嶺) (painter/draughtsman; Japanese; ; 1844 - 1895)
Painter. Bairei studied the Maruyama style with Nakajima Raisho (1796-1871) and subsequently, with Raisho's permission, the Shijo style with Shikawa Bunrin (1808-77). He was instrumental in the founding of the Kyoto Prefecture Painting School (Kyoto-fu Ga-gakko) in 1880. In 1886, Bairei worked alongside Kubota Beisen, whose contribution begins the scroll, on ceiling panels for the Empress' dressing room in the Imperial Palace. The two also worked together towards the establishment of the Kyoto Young Painters' Study Group (Kyoto Seinen Kaiga Kenkyukai) in 1886, and the Kyoto Art Association (Kyoto Bijutsu Kyokai) in 1890. In addition to his various appointments in public art-schools, Bairei taught in his private studio many of the leading painters of the fledgling Kyoto Nihonga school.
