Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Scene from Sakaomodaka Yoroi Choja, 1850

From an untitled series of horizontal oban kabuki prints

Horizontal Oban Kabuki Prints by Toyokuni III - Handsome design from an untitled series of horizontal kabuki prints by Toyokuni III dating from 1847 - 1852. The horizontal oban format is an interesting departure from the more commonly seen vertical oban actor prints, allowing Toyokuni III to create detailed settings for the characters. These images provide a nice context for the interaction between the figures. Some prints feature deluxe publishing treatments such as burnishing or embossing. An interesting complement to Toyokuni III's more well-known vertical kabuki designs.

Special detail - From right, the actors are Ichimura Uzaemon XII as Soga no Juro Sukenari, Onoe Baiko IV as Oisoya's wife Okiku, and Sawamura Chojuro V as the male geisha (otoko geisha) Koga in a scene from "Sakaomodaka Yoroi Choja" at the Ichimura Theater.

Artist - Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Image Size - 9 3/8" x 13 7/8"

Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Backed with paper. Faint vertical centerfold. Some prints have a few wormholes, repaired. Slight toning, slight soiling at edges. Please see photos for details.
