Katsushika Kansai (1814-1894) was a follower of Katsushika Hokusai, who inspired him throughout his career.
Kansai mastered many techniques, including ink painting.
He would also make copies of Hokusai's drawings exclusively produced for export during Meiji period, responding to the high demand by foreigners following world exhibitions.
This book is in very good condition given its age. Some spots, folds, rubbed and slightly soiled covers, otherwise the prints are in very good condition.
