Subject:Crows woodblock print artist?
Posted By: Louise Sat, Oct 31, 2015 IP:

Also appreciate any help with artist on this woodblock print I have. I believe it is Sozan but cannot find it when looking under Sozan.

I'm also thinking Ito Sozan. The right half of the top seal is smudged, so it's not possible to get a definitive reading. Stylistically, it looks like Sozan, and the legible parts of the 2 seals are consistent with seals used by him.

Your print is possibly a rare pre-quake Sozan print which hasn't yet been documented on the web. If so, it's a very nice find!

Dear Louise,
I suggest you my new website dedicated to Ito Sozan:, where there is everything I found in over four years of research.
Your print has been inserted in my catalog at nr. CH-08, (, but as you can see, I don't know the size of the image, nor if the back is printed a number from the publisher Watanabe or some other writing.
I would be grateful if you could provide me with the measures to be included on the site and another better image than mine.
Any other further information on Ito Sozan's prints could be useful.
Thank you.
