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