Biography Kan˘, Naonobu 狩野尚信 (1607 - 1650)

Kan˘ Naonobu was born in Kyoto, the son of Kan˘ Takanobu, and the younger brother of Kan˘ Tan'yu. Already in 1623 he was appointed goy˘ eshi (court painter - the shogun's court), and in 1626 he worked together with his brother for the shogun in Nij˘ castle. He was very successful as a painter: in 1630 he was summoned to Edo and given an estate, after which he founded the Kobikich˘ branch of the Kan˘ school. His brother and he are seen as the greatest Kan˘ artistes of the early Edo period.
