Surnames Nakamura; personal names Aritsune and Arichika; a Kyoto artist also working in Osaka; pupil of the founder of the Osaka printmaking school, Ryûkôsai.
One of the more fascinating Osaka print designers who worked from the early to the middle periods of kamigata-e; designed many stencil prints (kappazuri-e), continuing with the medium long after full-color woodblock prints (nishiki-e) had become the standard; also designed some compelling nishiki-e. Nagahide was the most prolific designer of Gion nerimono-e (prints of the costume parades in Gion [in Kyoto]: 祇園邌物絵) in the 1810s–30s. His early style is much like Ryûkôsai's and Shôkôsai's. He experimented with a range of formats, including distinctive hexagonal kappazuri-e and hashira-e (pillar prints) that were otherwise rarely encountered in kamigata-e.
Pupils included Naniwa Nagakuni; Nagashige; Hidemari; Hidekuni; Hidekatsu.
