Japanese Yokohama Woodblock Print Triptych Yoshitora
Japanese Yokohama woodblock print triptych featuring Westerners, Chinese, and Japanese on a bustling street in front of the modern Tsukiji Hotel in Tokyo by Utagawa Yoshitora (flourished 1850-1880) dated 1870. Japanís first Western style hotel, the Tsukiji Hotel was built for foreigners in 1868 and was destroyed by fire in 1872. The assembled triptych is about 14 3/8"V x 28 3/8"H. Each panel measures about 14 3/8"V x 9 5/8"H. The print has very good color and is in good to fair overall condition. The panels are separate and are not backed. Margins are evident. There are old repairs both to wormage holes and to areas of paper loss. The paper is wrinkled around some of the repairs. Soiling is evident. This triptych is from a New Orleans collection.
