A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction
Early Edo Woodblocks - Handsome design from a group of early Edo era woodblocks by 18th and 19th century master artists such as Hokusai, Eizan, Eisen, Toyokuni I, and others. This terrific selection of illustrations includes beauties, kabuki portraits, and scenes from everyday life, depicting traditional tales and novels, as well as the new "floating world," in wonderful detail. This is a terrific offering of classic, early designs, and a wonderful opportunity to add a work by a renowned ukiyo-e artist to any collection.
Beauty and Maid with Sandals - Interesting kabuki scene of a beauty reacting with horror as a maid brings her a pair of zori sandals. The beauty stares at them with her mouth agape, holding her sleeves to her chest. She wears an outer robe patterned with a variety of prints, including a geometric design with paulownia motifs, over a white under robe tied with a black obi. The servant turns her head away with a distraught expression as she leans forward. Metal lanterns hang from the wooden wall behind them. Wonderfully expressive faces in this handsome Edo era design.
