Biography Keishű, Takeuchi (1861 - 1943)
Essentially a self-taught artist, Takeuchi Keishű was introduced to Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, who promptly made him a pupil and gave him the G˘ Toshisuke, though that had not been Keishű's intention when he went there. Still, his name appears on the Yoshitoshi memorial, indicating that he considered himself a Yoshitoshi student.
