A fun and colorful Japanese export painting on fine silk showing a samurai in full armor and charging with a long spear yari. The silk renders a kind of optical effect which the camera lens picks up as a double image illusion. Actual view is sharp to the more sophisticated human eye.

About 19" by 15.6" in the frame, of about 1" width. Very good condition no stains or tears. Quite decorative.

A graceful bijin (beauty) woodblock print by the 18th century artist Kiyomine Torii (1787 - 1868), a pupil and grandson of Torii Kiyonaga of Edo (Tokyo).

His bijin often have the elongated lines leaning slightly backwards and gazing at the long train of her kimono, typical of the Torii school. He later used the name Torii Kiyomitsu II. In this print, artist signature at left, publisher seals Nishimra-ya (1730-1840s) below...

Toyokuni (1769-1825) is best known for his actor and women woodblocks. This scene of 2 young bijin seated in front of a brazier is from the series "36 Famous Beauties", circa 1820.

Matted and set in an older bamboo motif frame. Frame size about 12 by 16 inches. Slight fading on the print...

The early Japanese woodblock artists did many many famous bijin, or beauties. Kikugawa Eizan (1787-1867) was well known for his pictures of women and developed a style influenced by Hokusai and Utamaro. This picture of a geisha holding an incense pot has long flowing lines. It is framed in mahogoney, with his signature & seal. It is also rare due to the unusual size, which is a vertical diptych (double print), called kakemono...

The Japanese wood blocks are sometimes quite humorous with a social commentary. This is a marvelous and genuine 19th century Hiroshige II (1829-1869) print. It shows a naughty boy shooting a jet of water in the face of a samurai attendant while his master looks on. Judging by the looks on the faces of the passers by, they all approved, including the mother who seems to be giving them a tongue lashing. Image is 9 x 13 1/2 inches showing and in a 14 by 18 inch frame. (Note. The frame is not bent, ...

Hiroshige (1797-1858) did several series of the "53 Stations of Tokaido". This scene is from one of the series and it has that marvelous blue transitioning from deep saphire to light blue. I also like the diagonally winding road with the tiny figures diminishing into the horizon. Signature of the artist lower left, censor seals upper right next to the banner. Beautifully matted in raw silk and in an oriental style frame. Most likely Edo period.
