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.

Scene from Sanbukutsui kakizome Soga, 1834 - Interesting kabuki scene from the play "Sanbukutsui kakizome Soga" at the Ichimura Theater in Edo of two samurai waring matching rust and white kamishimo over black kimono trimmed with white strips, their outer robes tucked up for easier movement. The fellow at left grimaces angrily while at right Omi Kotata watches him with a worried frown. The actor in the right panel is Kataoka Ichizo I. A softly shaded rose colored band runs across the top. Nice expressive figures.
