Subject:Seeking info on Edo period album
Posted By: Bruce Tue, Dec 21, 2021 IP: 110.44.115.142

I recently purchased an Edo period album of shunga pen and ink drawings and am trying to identify the artist. The drawings are very fine and may be worthy of consideration by members of the forum.

Pic.1,
四季のはな - Shiki no hana - Flowers of the Four Seasons
春むすめ  - Haru musume - Spring maiden

(Old alternative kanas are are represented in their modern forms)

Pic.3 (Right side)
大島蔵書 - Ōshima collection of books
Left side,
繪本四季の花 - E-hon shiki no hana - Picture Book, Flowers of the Four Seaons

These "shunga" books usually are not signned by the artists.

With regards,
I.Nagy
