On the right side of the print (see picture 4) is the name of the artist, as well as, the date of the print (Meiji 22nd year – 1889). In the upper right hand corner (see picture 5) are the Japanese words (fubuki or “snow storm”). Chikanobu was from the Utagawa school which was the dominate school of wood block printing throughout the late Edo and Meiji eras. This print is oban sized 9 1/2″ x 15″ (24 x 35 cm).
