I also saw this print, which is coming up for auction.
The entire group in this auction has the “smelll” of a dealer consignment so the “missreading” of Hokui’s name as Hokusai is maybe not so surprising.
The Nichiren series by Hokui is loosely based on Kuniyoshi’s famous Nichiren set.
The present print is derived from one of Kuniyoshi’s masterpieces “Nichiren in exile on Sado island”.
Incidentally it is interesting to note Kuniyoshi based his design on a design by Kawamura Bumpo, the famous Kyoto Shijo School master.
