Hi all --
I've recently acquired a tattered fragment of a print bearing a signature that I read as "Shūsai ga" 秋斎画. I see that Roberts includes a stub entry for an ukiyo-e artist signing with these kanji, but I can find no other reference to such an artist.
Stylistically, I would guess that the design dates from c. 1790-1820, as it looks to me to be in the vein of Utamaro and Eizan, but I have been unable to discern anything else... anyone have any ideas?
