06/13/24    Added new entries for Yamafuji Sh˘ji (山藤章二), and Unknown Artists (1907, 1920).  Updated entries for Natori Shunsen (1940, 1950, 1956, 1957), Takehisa Yumeji (1915), Utagawa Kunisda III (1906, 1907, Date Unknown (Triptych)), and Unknown Artists (1915, 1916, 1919, Undated Postcards #1).

06/07/24    Added new entries for Adachi Gink˘ (安 達吟光), It˘ Seiu (1958), Kobayashi Ikuei (小林幾栄), Kobayashi Ikuhide (小林幾英), Nagashima Shungy˘ (永島春暁), Shunsai Toshimasa (春斎年昌), Takeuchi Keishű (武内桂舟), Toyohara Chikanobu (1894), Toyohara Kunichika (1868, 1872, 1892-1894, and 1896-1898), Utagawa Kokunimasa (1891, 1892, 1894, 1899), Utagawa Kunisada III (1891-1896, 1899), Utagawa Kunitoshi (歌川国利), Watanabe Tadahisa (渡辺忠久), Y˘sai Nobukazu (楊 斎延一), and Unknown Artists (1891, 1892, 1894, 1896, 1910, 1978).  Updated entries for Baid˘ Kunihide (1917), Utagawa Kunisada (1902, 1918-1920), and Unknown Artists (1926).   I have decided to start including pre-1900 prints featuring s˘shi, shingeki, and shimpageki actors and rakugo performers.  Very few such prints were ever designed (other than those featuring Kawakami Otojir˘ and members of his troupe), but they can legitimately be considered to constitute "modern" Japanese theater prints.

05/21/24  Added new entries for Tsuioka K˘gyo (1897, 1898, 1899).  I have decided to include K˘gyo's pre-1900 prints from the series N˘gaku Zue (能楽図絵) despite being outside the temporal scope of this website.  Given that the series ran from 1897 to 1902, it did not make logical sense to exclude half of the series from the site, particularly as K˘gyo was essentially the only 20th century N˘ print artist with any significant N˘ print output in the late 1890s.  Moreover, since these prints were reprinted in the 1900-1904 time period, later copies of these prints would technically be within the scope of this site on that basis.

05/18/24  Add new entries for Emil Orlik (1922), and Tokuriki Tomikichir˘ (1975).  Reorganized the Other Topics - Masks (マスク) and Puppets (人形) sections.

(劇場, 映画館, など) sections.

04/29/24    Completed Phase III of a major site expansion.  Whereas links were previously provided to individual artist pages where prints of a given play could be found, now all prints by all artists depicting a given play are set forth on the same page in chronological order.  In the case of certain iconic kabuki plays, prints depicting scenes from those plays are set forth chronologically over 2-4 pages (and sometimes organized by individual act or scene).  Also added a new entry for Munakata Shik˘ (1958).

02/11/24  Completed Phase II of a major site expansion.  Whereas links were previously provided to individual artist pages where prints of a given performer could be found, now all prints by all artists depicting a given performer are set forth on the same page in chronological order.  In the case of certain kabuki superstars, their prints are set forth chronologically over 2-4 pages.

˘ (1961), Yamamura K˘ka (1930), and Unknown Artist (1915, 2005).  Updated Paul Binnie (1986, 1994, 1995, 1997, 2006), Inagaki Tomoo (1931), Kamei T˘bei (Unknown Date), Ota Gak˘ (1968, Unknown Dates), Saito Seijir˘ (Undated Postcards), Takehisa Yumeji (1921), Torii Kiyotada (Undated Prints), Tokuriki Tomikichir˘ (1982, Miscellaneous Undated Prints), Torii Kotondo (Undated Prints), Yamamoto Hisashi (1988, Unknown Dates), Yamamura K˘ka (Unknown Date), and Unknown Artists (Undated Miscellaneous Prints).

05/17/23    Added new entries for Hasegawa Sadanobu III (Undated Pochibukuro #2), Nagoshi Kunisabur˘ (1922), Shiba Hideo (柴 秀夫), Tsuruya K˘kei (2005, 2006), and Yoshihara Masamichi (吉原正道).  Updated entries for Fujisawsa Tatsuo (1917, 1918, 1919, Undated), Ohashi Gekk˘ (Undated), Tanaka Shik˘ (1922, 1924, 1925, Undated Prints), Torii Kiyotada (Undated Prints), Utagawa Kunisada III (1917, 1918, 1920, Date Unknown (1917-1920)), and Yoshida Eish˘ (1914, 1915, Undated Miscellaneous).

05/02/23    Completed Phase I of a major site expansion.  In addition to prints being organized by artist names, prints are now also organized by performer names, play/film titles, and certain key words topics (e.g., music, dance, puppets, masks, kumadori, theatre/cinema buildings, etc.).  Moreover, a subset of prints have been arranged chronologically by the depicted play's performance date (or the depicted film's release date).  Viewers are encouraged to adjust the left frame as needed to facilitate site navigation.

One consequence of this site expansion has been an increase in the number of links on many pages, as well as links to pages that contain multiple images (not all of which may be relevant) . Phase II will concentrate on streamlining site navigation by combining, when feasible, prints of the same actor, play, key word topic, etc. by different artists together on a single page.  Pages that currently contain multiple images will be re-coded so that only relevant subject matter will be shown.  Phase II will occur behind the scenes and be seamlessly implemented week by week over time until complete.  In view of the amount of new coding required, it was felt it was better to roll out Phase I now, however cumbersome it may be, rather than to delay the site expansion for another six to twelve months.

11/22/22    Added new entries for Arimoto Takayoshi (有本貴義), Sarah Brayer, Matt Brown, Inagaki Tomoo (1944), It˘ Takumi (1981, 1985, 1988, 1991), Jean Jansem, Kat˘ Tei (1936), Kobayashi Asaji (1936), Lynn Matsuoka (リン 松岡), Minamiya Otohiko (南屋音彦), Ry˘ji Ch˘mei (1936), and Unknown Artists (Senshafuda Set #6).  Updated entries for It˘ Takumi (1987, Unknown Dates), Kaneko Kunio (2007), Takahashi Hiromitsu (1986), Tsukioka Nink˘ (1936), Utagawa Kunisada (1901), and Unknown Artists (Undated Miscellaneous Prints).
