The school painted mostly fusuma (sliding doors), was based largely on the style of the Kanō school, and was centered in Kyoto. A relatively small school, the majority of its painters were students of Tōhaku and of various Kanō masters. Tōhaku himself was a student of Kanō Eitoku and is said to have considered himself the stylistic successor to Sesshū. He painted largely in monochrome ink, in largely Chinese-inspired styles, and is particularly famous for his depictions of monkeys.
