Japanese Woodblock Print Kunichika Bust Actor Samurai
Bust portrait of an unidentified actor portraying a samurai holding a long-bow behind his back from a series titled "Mirror of Good and Evil Spirits" by Toyohara Kunichika (1835-1900), published by Tsunoi in 4/1868. Paper size: 14"V x 9 1/2"H. The print is a fine impression with excellent color, mica dust in the sky, and wood grain plainly evident in the background. There are small margins only on the right and bottom sides. Japanese album paper backed. The face is slightly soiled. The back is clean with no tape or tape residue. This series is illustrated on pg. 86 of "Time Present and Time Past Images of a Forgotten Master: Toyohara Kunichika 1835-1900" by Amy Reigle Newland, Hotei Publishing, 1999.
