Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Commoner in a Heron Kimono

Small Format Kabuki Prints - Handsome design from a group of kabuki portraits by Kunichika in the unusual yotsugiri (half chuban) size. Each print features a half-length portrait of an actor, some against solid color backgrounds and others against designs. A few diptychs depict scenes from plays. These smaller format designs share the same attention to detail and composition as Kunichika's larger format works, and feature expressive figures and lively colors. An interesting complement to Kunichika's larger kabuki prints.

Artist - Kunichika (1835 - 1900)

Image Size - 6 3/4" x 4 1/2"

Condition - This print with nice color and detail as shown. Backed with paper. Slight soiling. Please see photos for details.
