Nobukazu was a Tokyo print designer and painter. Although his original name was Shimada Jiro, as an artist he is known by two first names; Watanabe, and Yōsai . He was considered the best student of Yōshū Chikanobu (1838-1912). Nobukazu worked in a variety of genres, but is perhaps best known for his Sino-Japanese and Russo-Japanese War prints (senso-e). During the Sino-Japanese War (1894-1895), Nobukazu did a considerable number of outstanding triptychs and made his reputation designing battle scenes on land and sea. He also produced lithographs.
