Hi. I have been poking around on the web trying to find information about the artist Chikanobu. His dates are always given as 1838-1912,
but I have found 3 different names for him: Toyohara (artist of the Mirro of Historical Women and Paragons of Filial Piety), Yoshu (True Beauties, possibly Ladies in Waiting of Chidoya Palace),
and Hashimoto (pictures of the official life of the Meiji court).
Are these three different artists? Or did he use different names for different series/styles/periods of his own life?
I purchased a print of the scene from Tales of Genji in which Kashiwagi sees Genji's young wife with her kitten. I must have looked at 200 prints by Chikanobu today, but only found one other one in this style.
Thanks for any enlightenment.
