Hi! I just got a beautiful collection of (I assume prints) produced by the Hanga-in Company in Shinagawa, marked 1955 on the outside of the case. There are 5 prints, but I assume made in relation to the Kabuki play that was being portrayed. I’m interested to see if anyone knows the original artist or anything about these print collections that were sold post war.  Thanks for any help!

    Print by Ohashi Gekkô 大橋月皎 (1895-), signature and seal 月皎. He dedicated himself since 1935 to painting kabuki, becoming recognized as the foremost kabuki painter. He considered the actors to be his painting instructors.
