Biographical Data


Nakamura Shūkō 秋香 (active c. 1894-1904)
No information is available on this artist who created senso-e (war prints) for both the Sino-Japanese War (1894-95) and the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905).  He has also been named as Nakamura Akika by Nicholas Chakin.1 The artist is likely not Tomita Shūkō the painter and illustrator active in the same period although Merritt writes that Tomita Shuko "drew many prints for the Sino-Japanese War."2
