Japanese Woodblock Print Diptych Toyokuni II Toyoshige

Edo Period Japanese woodblock print diptych by Toyokuni II (1777-1835), also known as Toyoshige, depicting actors portraying a scene from the kabuki theater. Each panel bears a kiwame seal (used prior to 1842), the seal of the publisher Tama (active 1825-1835), the signature "Toyokuni ga," and the name of the actor. Each panel measures 14 1/8" - 14 1/4"V x 9 3/4" - 9 7/8H." This early 19th century print is an excellent impression with wood grain evident in the background. The condition and color is very good. The diptych is not backed and the baren marks and image are clearly visible on the back. It has not been previously framed. There are minor imperfections and a tiny repair at the upper right edge.
