Watanabe Seitei was born Yoshikawa Yoshimata in Edo (Tokyo), and began training with the artist Kikuchi Yosai (1788-1878) at the age of sixteen, followed by a brief period in the studio of the painter and lacquer artist, Shibata Zeshin (1807-1891). Six years later he was adopted by a literary friend of the family, Watanabe Koshi. In 1878 he travelled to the United States and Europe where he received a silver metal for a painting he submitted to the Paris Exposition. He remained in Paris for three years and became the first Nihonga artist to reside in Europe to study Western painting.  He is also known as Watanabe Shotei.
