The Shijō school (四条派, Shijō-ha), also known as the Maruyama–Shijō school, was a Japanese school of painting. It was an offshoot school of the Maruyama school of Japanese painting founded by Maruyama Ōkyo, and his former student Matsumura Goshun in the late 18th century. This school was one of several that made up the larger Kyoto school. (From Wikipedia)
