Subject:Unknown Japanese Painters, final two of four
Posted By: J. Boussinesq Sat, Jun 02, 2018 IP: 2600:1702:1d80:a040:

Hello,

Here are the second two of four Japanese paintings where I have been unable to determine the artist. They were together with two by Uehara Konen (1878-1940) so they are all likely to be 20th century pre-war Japanese. These signatures and seals don’t seem to be in my references, which mostly run to woodblocks, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for all of the help.

J. Boussinesq
