Maddy,

Some of your prints show fragments of Japanese text in the upper margin. Hopefully the rest of the text is just hidden by mattings and not cut off. A good close-up of this text would probably help us identify the artist.

The text should be read from right to left, and above is my interpretation of a few of the Japanese characters: "-ya Jirô" (屋二郎), which could be a part of a publisher's name. The middle character could also be 三: "-ya Saburô" (屋三郎).

I'm sure that the experts in Japanese writing will be able to extract more from the text fragments.

Best regards,
Hans Olof
