Japanese Edo Woodblock Print - Kuniyoshi Entertainer
Japanese woodblock print depicting an entertainer traveling by boat with the tools of his trade. A red mask hangs on his back and he holds a bell in one hand. The image is signed at the right side "Ichiyusai Kuniyoshi ga" (1797-1861). The red Yoshi Kiri seal is beneath the signature. The print was published by Hori Takichi between 1847-1852. Vertical oban size (14 1/4"V x 9 3/4"H). Panel from a triptych. Very good color and overall condition with some minor fading and soiling. There is a stain on one corner of the mulberry paper album backing but it does not extend to the front.
