In addition, these works which featured the theme of modern women brought new development in an image of Munakata for women, and, as for the woman image of the woodblock print of everyday life which was produced triggered by “a key”, and got popularity, it was one of the driving forces to raise popularity of Shiko Munakata in later years.
