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.

Don't miss this opportunity to acquire a classic woodblock by this great Edo era artist at a low opening bid price.
Scene from Ichi-no-tani musha-e no iezuto, 1849 - Interesting scene from the kabuki play "Ichi-no-tani musha-e no iezuto" of Tamaya Shinbei attacking Ukai Kujuro at the foot of a bridge. Shinbei raises his sword above his head as he grabs the kimono of Kujuro, who is on his kneels as begins to fall backwards with a dazed expression.
