A name found in seals applied to many works by Tawaraya Soutatsu •U‰®@’B (? - 1640?) and by members of his school, both in combination with a signature and alone. The name is thought to be either Soutatsu's artistic name, gou † or the name of his studio, but is unclear. On works directly attributable to Soutatsu and his follower, Tawaraya Sousetsu •U‰®@á (active mid-17c), the Inen seal is a large round seal in red ink. The Inen seal used by another follower, Kitagawa Sousetsu Šì‘½ì‘Šà (active mid-17c), is a small square seal with letters that remain white against a red background. Both these sizes of seals were used by other painters working in the Soutatsu style. One example of the use of the Inen seal on a work by Soutatsu himself is the hanging scroll, The Lotus Pond and Water Fowl Renchi suikin-zu ˜@’r…‹×} (Kyoto National Meseum).
