Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fujiwara no Yukinari (972 - January 3, 1027) was a Japanese calligrapher (shodoka) during the Heian period. He was memorialized for his prowess in his chosen art by being remembered as one of the outstanding Three Brush Traces, along with Ono no Michikaze and Fujiwara no Sukemasa. Yukinari was the son of a courtier by the name of Fujiwara no Yoshitaka. After the early death of his father, he was raised by his grandfather, Prince Kanenori. Yukinari had a fairly successful career as a court official, serving as a Major Counselor. Yukinari further improved the Japanese style calligraphy, and showed great respect to its founder, Ono no Michikaze (894-966).
