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 prints of this early period are generally considered his best. 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...

This is a gorgeous Japanese woodblock print by the 19th century master Chikanobu (1838-1912). It shows 3 young women and their young lord in a boat enjoying the lush spring.

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. Very good lines, and I like especially the artistic device showing the warmth flowing from the heater across the 2 figures. Image showing 9 by 13 inches. 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...

This is a fun woodblock showing a naked man being tossed out of either a gambling house or a geisha house. It seems to be a universal practice, if you can't pay up, you get thrown out without clothes. Look at that oba-san's expression! By Toyokuni. Image area 9 3/4 by 13 1/2 inches. Double matted in grey and black. Good condition with about 5 small worm holes. Seal of artist on the drawer, lower right. There are 2 seals at the lower left. One is the publisher...

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...

This antique woodblock print is full of activity for the cherry blossom festival procession or parade. I count 18 young women behind 2 youthful samurai carrying and escorting a sedan chair. (These processions are wonderful and they still have them today. They wend their way through the narrow streets, musical instruments blaring and people dancing as they go. Food vendors everywhere.) Their lady sits inside. Again cherry blossoms everywhere. Seal mark of artist. This is a dyptich (double prin...

This one is really fun, yet another refined way to celebrate the cherry blossom festival. The ladies are composing poetry (usually haiku) and writing them onto fans, which are then floated in the water and drift down stream. Again cherry blossoms everywhere. Seal mark of artist. This is an original dyptich (double print) of a cherry blossom festival about 14 1/2 by 9 1/2 inches. Very good condition with a faint faint stain in the middle.

The Japanese go to considerable lengths to amuse their children as this print shows. A young girl is seated in a boat shaped wagon on wheels, with 2 smaller children along side.
