A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

Prints from the Age of the Samurai - With this group of Edo era prints opening at incentivized low bids, take a moment to be transported back to the age when samurai ruled Japan. During the Tokugawa Shogunate, Japan enjoyed a period of relative peace and prosperity for more than 250 years. Woodblock prints captured scenes from daily life, warriors and battles, the beauties of the Yoshiwara pleasure district, kabuki, and travelers along the Tokaido and Kisokaido roads. Watch for Age of the Samurai prints each week at Fuji Arts.

Ichikawa Danjuro as a Man Carrying a Lantern - Interesting kabuki portrait of Ichikawa Danjuro as a man carrying a lantern on a pole and holding a rope tied to a small chest of draws hanging over his shoulders, a sandal strapped atop the chest. He wears a blue tie-dyed summer kimono tucked up at the back for easier movement. A border of clouds separates the figure from a view of banners at left and a willow tree beside a wooden bridge at right. A handsome design.
