: I have two Japanese prints, but I don't know the authors and the time of creation of these prints. At present there are not experts of Japanese art in St.Petersburg, even in Hermitage, though Hermitage is the largest museum of western and oriental arts in Russia. I shall be grateful if you would answer me.

: Many thanks,

Hello Sergey,

Thanks for your message.

UNTITLED1.JPG is by Yoshitoshi (1839-1892). The signature (on the red, gourd-shaped cartouche) reads "Ikkaisai Yoshitoshi ga", and the print carries the date seal of 1864, 9th month.

UNTITLED2.JPG is by Kunisada II (1823-1880). The signature reads "Kunisada hitsu" with the red toshidama seal of the Utagawa schoool. The date of publication is 1865, 3rd month.

Best regards,

Hans Olof
