Nishikawa Sukenobu

1671 - Aug 20, 1750

Nishikawa Sukenobu, often called simply "Sukenobu", was a Japanese printmaker from Kyoto. He was unusual for an ukiyo-e artist, as he was based in the imperial capital of Kyoto. He did prints of actors, but gained note for his works concerning women. His Hyakunin joro shinasadame, in two volumes published in 1723, depicted women of all classes, from the empress to prostitutes, and received favorable results.
