Subject:Woodblock - unknown artist
Posted By: J. Boussinesq Mon, Aug 09, 2021 IP: 2600:1702:1d80:a040:

Hello All,

I tried one of these before, but had no luck. There are three uchiwa prints (Late Meiji probably) with identical signature and style that I am having difficulty identifying. Almost certainly Kyoto or surroundings (many Konobu, Seiho, etc. in same album), but I have not been able to make any progress. Unfortunately, the signature (enlarged) is in what I tend to think of as 'artist messy' calligraphy style, and the seal is just a squiggle. But any assistance would be appreciated.

That seal is used by Yumeji Takehisa, but the rest doesnt seem to match his signature or style

Thank you, it is quite a conundrum, particularly the style being so different from Yumeji's.
