You will not find better value woodblock prints than those by Kotozuka as he has not yet been recognised by many collectors.

NAKAZAWA, HIROMITSU was born in Tokyo and lived from 1874 to 1964 .

Like all woodblock artists from the 19th Century he created his own versions of some of the older series but his work is uniquely individual in style and displays his amazing artistic insight and creativity.

KUNISADA, UTAGAWA was born in the Honjo district in 1786.

He entered the school of Utagawa Toyokuni the 1st (1786 to 1825) around 1800 as an apprentice at the age of 14.

In his early teens he became a student of Utagawa Kunisada and later Chikanobu.

He was an alcoholic and playboy but created excellent scenes of everyday life, Kabuki drama and the beautiful women who had become part of his lifestyle.
