Japanese Edo Woodblock Print Eisen Five Colors of Ink
Japanese Edo period woodblock print depicting a beauty preparing to wash titled "Yellow" from the series "Five Colors of Ink" (Goshikizumi) by Keisai Eisen (1790-1848) published by Aritaya Seiemon between 1843-1846. A pupil of Eizan, Eisen is perhaps best known for his prints of sensual women. The artist's signature, Yoshimura Gentaro censor's seal, and seal of the publisher all appear at the lower left. Vertical oban print measuring nearly 14 3/8"V x 10"H. Very good impression quality and color. The paper is somewhat toned and discolored, thinned in a few small areas, and bears some minor old repairs at the edges.
