Does anyone have any information on a pupil of Kunichika's named Chikamitsu? I can find only two prints attributed to him. He uses the signature 国周門人周光 (chikamitsu pupil of Kunichika) on the one print of his in my collection. I have checked the usual sources and have found no references to him. Based upon the dates of the two prints he was active c. 1891-1896. The Japan Arts Council and the National Library of Australia both have one print of his in their collection, the same banzuke-type actor triptych providing the annual wages of famous actors.
Any information at all on this artist would be greatly appreciated.
