Subject:Uchiwa artist?
Posted By: J. Boussinesq Sun, Dec 26, 2021 IP:

Hello All,

Here is an example of an hand-painted uchiwa where I have been unable to identify the artist. Fortunately, the uchiwa was known to be purchased in Showa 3 (1928) from Mitsukoshi department store, so the time is well set. There are several other examples from this artist, all with very similar signatures and (hand-drawn?) seals. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

芋銭 - Usen
The artist always placed a cross (十 or 子)mark under his signature, which has no special significance.

Ogawa Usen 小川芋銭 1868-1938
