A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

Bill's $39 Selection Auctions - Fuji Arts’ low opening auctions are extremely popular and a great place to find a bargain. I’ve personally selected 160 high quality prints and we’re starting them at $39. Any high bid wins! We’ll post all 160 prints over four days. I looked for a good mix, rare and unusual, and in popular categories. Good luck bidding on my September selection!

Uneme - Attractive portrait of the beauty Uneme striking a pose as she dances, stretching her sleeve out with one hand and holding a folding fan in the other. She wears a blue outer kimono patterned with wheels, wisteria blossoms, and hollyhock leaves over a gold print kimono tucked into long red pants, the fabric trailing beneath her feet. At right, a tray holds a stack of graduated sake cups, and a long-handled sake server rests on the floor nearby. The expensive red pigment used on the pants and cups has oxidized to a gray tone. A handsome design from this rarely seen Kuniyoshi beauty series.

Image Size - 14" x 9 3/4"
