Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Frightened Beauty and Commoner with a Knife

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a beauty frightened by a commoner, who clenches a large knife between his teeth. She throws her arm out in alarm as she kneels beside the bed, an overturned pillow on the floor nearby. At left, another man hides behind a folding screen with a sword behind his back. Curtains hang in the doorway, but the walls are shabby with cracked and missing plaster. Nice expressive figures in a handsomely detailed interior setting.

Artist - Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Image Size - 14 1/8" x 29 1/8" + margins as shown

Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Three separate panels. Slight separation at ends and thinning along vertical folds. Slight soiling, a few creases and marks, rubbing along folds, slight glue residue on reverse from previous backing. Please see photos for details.
