Akabane: Ichikawa Ichizo III, 1862 - Beautiful print from a collaborative series with large figures designed by Toyokuni III and landscapes by Hiroshige II. Here, Ichikawa Ichizo III opens an umbrella as he looks over his shoulder with a frown. He wears a black coat with a beautiful burnished diamond pattern over a blue plaid kimono, a blue and white towel draped over his shoulder. His thinning hair is tied back into a slender topknot neatly tied with white cord, and a sword is tucked at his waist. The fan-shaped inset shows a winter view of a bridge over the river at Akabane, a red pagoda spire rising above the trees in the distance as snow falls gently over the landscape. An attractive design with soft shading in the background. Prints from this series are rarely seen.
