CHIKASHIGE, MORIKAWA

MORIKAWA CHIKASHIGE was a pupil of Kunichika and very little is known about his life or background. Some researchers have claimed that he lived from 1835 until 1900 but it is my belief that this is only a theory as I have never seen any factual evidence of this. What has been documented is that virtually all of  his known work was created between 1869 and 1882.

FOLLOWING ARE TWO RECORDED WORKS OF MORIKAWA CHIKASHIGE WHICH HAVE BEEN DATED.
