A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

Kuniyoshi Prints - One of the great masters of ukiyo-e woodblocks, Kuniyoshi is perhaps best known for his warrior prints, but he worked in a range of subjects. In addition to dramatic samurai and battle scenes, he also created kabuki, beauty, landscape, and comic designs, each expertly drawn and composed. Don't miss this opportunity to acquire a classic woodblock by this great Edo era artist at a low opening bid price.

Yoshitsune and Tadahira - Interesting scene of Minamoto no Yoshitsune in an elegant interior, standing beside a folding screen at left with a fan in hand. He looks ahead with a slightly sinister grin, a loose lock of hair framing his face. At right Tadahira, the husband of Fujinoe, watched the young samurai from a doorway, scowling angrily as he hides a lantern under his sleeve. Nice expressive figures in a handsome setting, with beautiful detail on the wood panels decorated with peony blossoms.
