This research is a consideration of the early works of the modern Japanesestyle painter, Hishida Shunsō (1874-1911), who played an active part in the Meiji era art scene. Particular emphasis will be placed on the works of Shunsō, who was enrolled in Tokyo Bijutsu Gakko (Tokyo School of Fine Arts). Previous research on Shunsō has mainly focused on two areas: on moro-tai painting techniques and the study of the artist's later works. In particular, a focus on moro-tai painting techniques forms the basis of most of the research conducted on Shunsō. Because of this, Shunsō's early works have been largely ignored. In this paper, the education that Shunsō received at Tokyo Bijutsu Gakko, and an analysis of his early works, are therefore afforded much consideration in this paper. For instance, the ideals of Okakura Tenshin (kakuzō) (1863-1913), who served as the principal of Tokyo Bijutsu Gakko at that time, are analyzed. From these considerations, the intention of Shunso's early works becomes clear.
