Original Toshikata (1866 - 1908) Japanese Woodblock Print
Enjoying the Doll Festival: Women of the Bunkyu Era (1861 - 1864)

Series; Thirty-six Selected Beauties, 1891 - 1894 (Sanjuroku Kasen)

Thirty-six Selected Beauties - Reflecting back on the classic beauty prints of the previous era, Toshikata's lovely "Thirty-six Beauties" series illustrates the daily activities of women from various time periods and walks of life. A geisha practicing the shamisen, a beauty in her private quarters, an entertainer crossing the river on a ferry--these charming scenes wonderfully capture life in Japan throughout the ages. Beautifully printed, many of the images feature deluxe techniques such as delicate embossing or burnishing, along with soft bokashi shading. A delightful series, great for collecting or display.

Special detail - Burnishing on the black obi and the black lacquer objects, accents of metallic pigment that have oxidized to a dark tone on the lavender kimono.
