Get an Onchi?

This weeks' auction of Japanese woodblock prints on Artelino features sosaku hanga, a 20th c. movement. These were my picks;
1. Kihachiro Shimozawa (new to me)
2. Yasoji Wakayama- beautiful image of an oil lamp- great shallow cuts for that almost sfumato fuzziness.
3.Don't see Onchi very often- (more here) -discerning collectors will descend like seagulls on a crust.
( while I wade in the shallows)
