Subject:Japanese Painting
Posted By: Alexander May Sun, May 10, 2020 IP:


I've been looking into works by Kawamura Manshu and I encountered this seal which I can't find in his other works. Is this a seal that he used? And are there online reference sites for seals used by Japanese artists?

Seal reads,
士昭 - Shiaki - Courtesy name of artist
(His real name was Manzō 萬蔵)

p.933 日本書畫落款印譜集成 柏書房 (Collection of Japanese Calligraphers' and Painters' Signatures and Seals - Kashiwa Shobō)

The online, free "Inkan search" search engine's capacity is very limited, e.g. it doesn't contain Kawamura Manshu.
The other online search engine is called "meikan-web", but it is subject to subscription charges - I cannot afford to use it either,

With regards,
