The Kourakuji school. A hereditary school of Buddhist painters *ebusshi Gt formed in the early 14c by Jouga (fl.c.1295), a priest at Kourakuji Ny, in Shinano MZ (present-day Nagano prefecture) province. Members of this school characteristically painted Joudo Shinshuu y^@ Buddhist subjects in ink with light coloring. Jouga is thought to have painted the Shinran Shounin den-e eal`G (Nishihonganji {莛, kyoto) in 1325. In 1343, Jouga's followers Soushun @w (1293-1370) and Enshun ~w (1318-84) collaborated to paint the Honganji Shounin den-e {莛l`G (Higashihonganji {莛, kyoto). In 1351, Enjaku ~, who may be the same artist as Enshun, painted the Shinshuu ressozou ^@c. The school continued to flourish until the end of the 15c.
