Subject:Request help reading caligraphy on Japanese Woodblock
Posted By: Roger Thu, Jun 06, 2019 IP: 2601:281:c202:b68a:9

Greetings! I would greatly appreciate any help in translating the Japanese script on this woodblock print. Would also be interested in any other information you might have on the artist. Thank you!
