It is extremely rare to encounter a set of prints and painting like this in the market. They have been kept in the famous publisher in Kyoto, The Uchida, archives.

Founded in 1919, the company is still in existence today as an active publisher of shin-hanga in addition to publishing re-strikes of Edo period ukiyo-e prints.
