Saka Hoitsu is a prominent Japanese painter of the Rinpa art style. Hoitsu specialized in painting and design. His most notable work is Flowering Plants of Summer and Autumn, which is a pair of two-folded folding screen made with ink and color on silver and gold-foiled paper. Hoitsu first started learning the Kano style before studying ukiyo-e, a more popular style, under an experienced mentor. He dabbled in a few more styles before settling as a Rinpa artist. Due to poor health, Hoitsu became a Buddhist priest, spending his final 21 years in seclusion. During this time, he studied the work of Ogata Jorin extensively, reproducing his work as woodblock prints. He also produced a woodblock book of his own, titled Oson Gafu. He died aged 66.
