I understand what you mean about these "Choka" (Choka Matsumoto) prints. Tried to find some info about the artist but he seems to be a phantom just a date of birth 1902....
There is an interesting article by Artelino about Kyoto printmakers and how the Sosaku Hanga artists were not well accepted/successul and to survive made popular Shin Hanga designs.
This is just a wild guess (no back-up documents)
Who was "Choka" maybe just an alias of a true Sosaku Hanga artist forced to design Shin Hanga.
Azechi Umetaro had a very different background but was also a Sosaku Hanga artist.
Good luck with your research
