About Urakusai Nagahide
Nagahide was active as a print designer in both Kyoto and Osaka from about 1804 through 1848. His early prints tend to resemble those of his master, Ryukosai Jokei. From 1810 to the 1830s Nagahide was the most prolific designer of stencil prints (kappazuri) depicting the annual costume parade in the Gion district of Kyoto.
