Remarks
Nakamura Jakuemon IV
"The Rijksprentenkabinet, the Print Department of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Holland, has just acquired my Fuji Musume print, so I am now in a major European public collection, and in fact, I am their first living and contemporary woodblock artist, still producing today." Binnie, 2003
