Shusetsu 守拙 (20th  century)


No information is available about this artist who designed a set of kōkanfuda (multi-color votive exchange prints) for a nōsatsukai (votive slip association) which he signed 守拙 and sealed with an unread seal shown below. It is possible that he is one and the same with a little known nihonga artist whose name appears on several silk scroll paintings designed in the early 1900s who also signed his name 守拙, examples of whose work, signature and seals are also shown below.
