Kyosai Kawanabe 1831-1889 - Edo Utsushi-e - Ghost Eating Child
Ghost, Kawanabe Kyosai (1870) I notice there were a lot more paintings of ghosts b4 1900. Maybe because people were not skeptical back then & more open-minded. If there are so many paintings, I would think that at least that many people believed!
