NAKAZAWA, HIROMITSU was born in Tokyo and lived from 1874 to 1964 .
What has been documented is that virtually all of his known work was created between 18.
HIROSHIGE, ANDO was born in Edo in 1797 and Died in 1858.
It is usual for there to be six carved woodblocks for the creation of a single colour print.
