Vintage MFA Geisha Postcards and Prints

Boston MFA - Geisha Postcards And Prints
The Boston Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) has a treasure trove of vintage Japanese imagery.  Since I'm off for the rest of the year, I've had some time to search through their wonderful collection.  The images I selected were based primary on the non-master print makers that I am familiar with the exception of Eish˘sai Ch˘ki and Kitao Shigemasa.  I have blogged Utamaro, Harunobu, Yoshitoshi, etc. many times before.  Therefore, most of these images I had not seen before.  Anyway, here's my favorites.
