Japanese Edo Woodblock Print Keisai Eisen Beauty Bijin
Japanese Edo period woodblock print depicting a beauty standing under a pine tree viewing a bustling scene of boats on a waterway by Keisai Eisen (1790-1848). A pupil of Eizan, Eisen is perhaps best known for his prints of sensual women. The artist's signature, "kiwame" censor's seal, and seal of the publisher Sanoki all appear at the lower right. Dates from the 1820s to 1830s. Vertical oban print measuring 15"V x 10"H. Most likely a panel from a triptych. There is a faint soiled spot in the sky at the upper right and a small worm hole at the bottom right corner. A few tiny pinholes are visible at edges and the paper has fine wrinkles. Very good color and overall condition. The baren marks are clearly visible on the back.
