Japanese Edo Woodblock Print Eizan Salt Water Gatherer
Japanese Edo period woodblock print depicting a young salt-water gatherer by Kikugawa Eizan (1787-1867) from the series "Seiro Niwaka" (Yoshiwara Nikawa festival). Eizan, who was the master of Eisen, specialized in designing prints of beautiful women. The "kiwame" censor's seal and the seal of the publisher Yamaguchiya Tobei are at the lower right. The artist's signature is at the lower left. Dates from the 1810s to 1820s. Vertical oban print measuring 13 5/8"V x 9 1/8"H. Very good overall condition with excellent color. The baren marks are clearly visible on the back. There is some minor soiling and old adhesive residue in the background, a small amount of blue pigment transference to the lower left of the title cartouche, and two tiny pieces of archival tape at the top verso.
