Kuniyoshi Prints - One of the great masters of ukiyo-e woodblocks, Kuniyoshi is perhaps best known for his warrior prints, but he worked in a range of subjects. In addition to dramatic samurai and battle scenes, he also created kabuki, beauty, landscape, and comic designs, each expertly drawn and composed. Don't miss this opportunity to acquire a classic woodblock by this great Edo era artist at a low opening bid price.
The Pine-Tree of Successful Conclusion, 1843 - 1844 - Attractive Kuniyoshi triptych featuring beauties sailing in boats. Two women hang onto the edges of the boat at left as it tilts to the side, brushing against a roofed pleasure boat at right. A beauty smiles at them from inside the cabin, gripping the wooden support as the ships bobs in the choppy water. A fence at left encloses the famous "Pine Tree of Success," the branches hanging out over the river and framing a view of a distant bridge and other boats. A charming subject with a handsomely detailed setting.
