Japanese Prints @ St. Kate's: Selections from the Archives & Special Collections at St. Catherine University

Miyagawa Shuntei

MIYAGAWA Shuntei  宮川春汀

Miyagawa Shuntei studied woodblock print illustration under Watanabe Shōka and later, Tomioka Eisen. From 1895 until 1907, Shuntei produced magazine, book, and newspaper illustrations, which commonly included beautiful women and playful children. The scenes depicted in his prints did not show the lives of average Japanese people, as he chose to focus on the lifestyles of upper-class families.
