Hi Guy,

I completely agree with your statement.

Although I am unfamiliar with Shinsai, I cannot stop making the analogy with Hokusai.

Here is the 8 Views of Kanazawa printed by Hokusai in 1805 :

The resemblance is striking !

When I saw that picture of the man in the snow, I instantly though of this print, made in 1835 :

Therefore, I would totally date the new series of the 8 views of Omi by Shinsai in 1835 - 1836

My 2 cents,
Stephane
