tales and novels, which he illustrated at the same time. He is
also said to have been an adept at the popular forms of poetry.
In 1792 he illustrated the story of the "Tongue-cut Sparrow," still
signing himself Shunro, but not Katsukawa. In the following
year he styles himself alternately Mugura (instead of Katsukawa)
Shunro, Toshu formerly Shunro (as pupil of a certain Torin, according
to Bing), Tokitaro Kako (in two books of about 1798-1801
(Duret, Nos. 287, 283) and on the "Eight Views of Lake Omi,"
- Fenollosa Cat., No. 359, cites a certain Hishikawa Sori, but leaves it doubtful whether this be, as Fenollosa inclines to believe, a distinct painter or only one of the many metamorphoses of Hokusai. Of this Hishikawa Sori there survive some very delicately conceived and beautifully coloured illustrations of Poems on Artisans, 30 sheets, small folio. As the prints signed Sori are as fine as any of Hokusai's work, there seems no need for denying them to him, as the Hayashi Cat. does (No. 1205).
- A certain Katsushika Taito, several of whose prints are mentioned by the Hayashi Cat. (No. 1240 seqq.), and who is the author of an illustrated work: Flowers and Birds, that appeared in two volumes at Osaka, 1848-49 (ibid., No. 1785), was probably a late pupil of Hokusai (but see also under Shigenobu).
