Just a small correction on the reading of the first part of the name. MFA has a mistake here. The characters 立川斎 are usually read as 'Ryűsensai' (rarely 'Rissensai'), but never 'Ritsusensai'.

The readings and characters on Ukiyo-e hold in collections located outside of Japan are frequently misinterpreted in the digital archives. Particularly MFA has a number of dubious cases, so that double-checking with Japanese collections is always a must.
