Sozan Ito, 1884-?
Ito Sozan designed kacho-e, prints with birds and flowers. They were published by Watanabe Shozaburo from 1919 to 1926. When the cooperation with Watanabe ended, Koson Ohara took the role of kacho-e artist for Watanabe. The reasons why the cooperation with Watanabe ended, are subject to speculation.
