Tokyo-born Japanese painter Chikatoshi Enomoto was introduced to Shimei Terashima in 1913 and became a student of Kiyokata Kaburagi in 1916. Together with fellow students Enomoto started presenting his works in 1918 at regional exhibitions, and graduated from the Tokyo School of Fine Arts in 1921. During the following years, he was a regular exhibitor at the state controlled Emperor’s Exhibitions and was awarded prizes in 1922 and 1928 for paintings of modern girls called bijinga. He continued to take part in the Emperor’s and later the New Bunten Exhibitions during the 1930s and 1940s.

One of his most famous paintings is Beauty Under Cherry Blossoms. Concurrently, Enomoto also attended private exhibitions of Kaburagi’s Kyodo-kai and Shinsui Ito’s Seikin-kai, known for their avant garde style. In 1946 he was appointed as a juror for the The Japan Fine Arts Exhibition, also known as Nitten. Enomoto was also commissioned to paint murals, notably in 1936 commemorating the marriage of the Japanese Prince Chichibu and in 1962 for a hotel in Tokio.
