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.

Boats Passing, 1847 - 1850 - Interesting kabuki scene of two boats passing each other, the samurai at left scowling angrily as he eyes the commoner in the vessel beside him. He wears a black coat, and his swords have protective covers over the hilts for traveling. At right, a courtesan reacts with alarm, throwing her hands out at her sides while her companion looks slightly worried. A handsome design with an attractive setting.
