Biographical / Historical:
Hisajiro (born 1888 or 1889, died 1930 April 20) and Eisuke Miura (b. circa 1890, d. unknown) were Japanese brothers and painting mounters hired by Charles Lang Freer to remount his collection of East Asian paintings in preparation for their donation to the Smithsonian Institution. The brothers traveled to Detroit and worked out of Freer's home in a remounting studio established in the gallery space of the Freer House in 1916-1917. They also traveled to New York City while in Freer's employ.

The Miura family, including Hisajiro, Eisuke and their eldest brother Shinzo (b. 1883 or 1884, d. 1922), operated a mounting studio in Kyoto and were members of the Kyoto Mounters Association, and may have expanded to include a second branch in Osaka. In 1914, Shinzo was paralyzed and adopted Eisuke as his successor. However, in 1921, Eisuke left the family and firm, his activities thereafter unknown. Upon Shinzo's death, Hisajiro took over the business until his own passing.
