Tesseki was noted as painter, calligrapher and swordsman, and in fact he lost his life in an abortive uprising against the Shogunate just a few years before it finally fell in the Meiji restoration...The works of Tesseki are noted above all for boldness: boldness of design and of brushwork, as well as for his free and sinuous calligraphy.
