This is an alphabetical list of painters who are known for painting in the Nihonga style. It has to be noted that some artists also painted in the western Yōga style, and that the division between the two groups could be blurred at points.

Artists are listed by the native order of Japanese names, family name followed by given name, to ensure consistency even though some artists may be known outside Japan by their western-ordered name.

The list is broken down into the period during which the artist was first active: Meiji, Taishō, Shōwa and Heisei era.

Meiji era (1868-1912)[edit]

Taishō era (1912-1926)[edit]

Shōwa era (1926-1989)[edit]

Heisei era (1989-2019)[edit]
