Shunei (1762 - 1819) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Asao Tomejuro I as Niimura Magoemon

Comments - Fantastic kabuki portrait by Shunei of the actor Asao Tomejuro I as Niimura Magoemon. The elderly man looks forward with a distressed expression, frowning with wrinkled brows, his hand spread open at his side. His thinning white hair is pulled back into a small topknot at the back of his head, and his face is wrinkled with heavy jowls. A very realistic image with beautiful soft shading. A wonderfully expressive figure enhanced by a distressed silver mica background. A real masterpiece of woodblock portraiture.

Artist - Shunei (1762 - 1819)

Image Size - 9 1/2" x 14 1/2" + margins as shown
