Biography Mizushima, Nihofu (1884 - ?)
Mizushima Nihofu graduated at the Tokyo School of Fine Arts. He contributed six designs to the groundbreaking series of landscape prints Hanshin meisho zue - Pictures of famous places in Osaka and Kobe, published in 1916. In 1920 he wrote and illustrated Tōkaidō gojūsan tsugi, Setonaikai - 53 stations of the Tokaidō, the Inland Sea. The rest of his career is rather obscure. He is cited by both Onchi Kōshirō and Ono Tadashige as one of the early sponsors of the Sōsaku Hanga movement, but the Western literature shows no examples of that work. The date of his death is not known.
