Hello, my father had these 2 prints on his wall until he passed away. I never asked him about them and would now like to find out!
Can anyone give me some information?
thank you

From the information in the email you sent, the first print is a reproduction of a print by Isoda Koryusai (1735 - 1790). Here is an original at the Boston MFA:
