Subject:ukiyo-e and sumi-e i.d
Posted By: Francisco Fri, Sep 01, 2017 IP: 2001:8a0:e95a:4f01:b

Hello,

I have used the ukiyo-e.se website before for id of some crepon prints I bought recently. Everyone was super helpful, but for some reason I am not able to post a follow up question there, so coming here for some help. Total newbie, willing to learn!

1. Can you help me i.d. the author of this chirimen gami. The style looks (could be so wrong) Kuniyoshi (cats, series with noble women, matsushima no tsubone) but i can't id the signature.

2. Today I bought a small sumi-e. Very pretty. Any idea of it's author/origin. Pics below.

Thank you very much
Francisco

Your chirimen-shi reads,
賢女烈婦鑑 Kenjo reppu kagami or Mirror of Wise
Women and Virtuous Wives
松嶋局 Matsushima no Tsubome
To read the cartouche with the artist's name
a better quality close up pic would be necessary.
I couldn't find any trace on the net about this
series ending with ....鑑, not... 鏡 (both read...kagami)
2nd picture,
The seal reads,
儒岸  Ruan (Scholar's Confucian) Coast
(Chinese)
Can be an art name of the artist.
That is not enough for the identification.
With regards,
