Artist Bio: 
We can confirm that his works were published via Watanabe and that he first used the pseudonym Fuyo from around 1916 to 1932, after which he used Eisho:

However, according to Merritt (and likely sourced from the ukiyo-e scholar Fujikake Shizuya, 1938), Narazaki Eisho used the art names Fuyo from 1916-1922, and Eisho from 1922-1936.

Note that all of the mitsugiri prints that I have seen are signed "Fuyo" 扶陽, not Eisho, so I suspect the mitsugiri prints are his oldest works (and indeed they do look older than his oban-sized print).
