Watanabe Seitei, also transcribed Watanabe Shōtei 渡辺省亭 (18 January 1851 - 2 April 1918) was a Nihonga painter and one of the first Japanese artists to go to Europe where he visited the Universal Exhibition in Paris (1878) and received a distinction. Shōtei blended Western realism with the delicate colours of the Maruyama-Shijō school, introducing a new approach into kachō-ga (bird and flower images).
