About the artist

Hironobu Kinoshita was a 19th-century woodblock print artist working in Osaka. Like many other Osaka artists, Hironobu focused on Kabuki scenes and portraits, as well as genre scenes, in his prints. Some have suggested that Hironobu was a pupil of the popular Osaka artist Hirosada.
