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.
Scene from Imayo mosazuki, 1848 - Interesting kabuki scene from the play "Imayo mosazuki" of the lion dancer Otaka Tonomo in a red wig striking a pose with his sleeves outstretched. At right, the seated nobleman Niki Tamonnosuke watches with a worried expression, while his companions at left smile with interest. The young boy Innami Katsuma kneels in front of the matron Tonomo Tsukasa. Panels along the back of the room feature a bold design of a pine tree. From left, the actors are Onoe Kikujiro II as Tonomo Tsukasa, Iwai Kumesaburo III, Nakamura Utaemon IV, and Ichikawa Komazo II. A handsome design.
