The last few years I collected some prints from the later Torii artists . Nothing wrong with the prints, but I'm a bit confused about who's who in this line of artists. It's clear to me up to Kiyosada, then the confusion starts. Next in line is Tadakiyo (with whom Kiyosada collaborated), but he's also known as Kiyotada VII. Then there's Torii Kotondo, he's also known as Kiyotada, but the numbering is strange because one source state that in the fifties (1954?) he changed his name to Kiyotada V. But I have recently acquired a print by a Kiyotada printed in 1951 . Who is he, nobody mentions him, and apart from some prints by him on various sites, no information. Can somebody shed some light in this matter please. Thanks,

Peter Paul Oort
