In the genre of Japanese Art, Chokosai Eisho (Hosoda Eisho) was an Ukiyo-e print artist and painter. He was active from ca. 1780-1800, with his major output being between ca. 1792 - 1799. Details of his personal life are unknown except that, along with Hosoda Eiri, he was a pupil of Hosoda Eishi. This artist produced only a few known paintings, but many prints specializing in okubi-e and bijinga (beauty prints). His designs are thought to be less idyllic and more robust and lifelike than Eishi's.
