Original Japanese woodblock print by Ishikawa Toraji (1875-1964), titled "The Heroine Toragozen in 'Soga'", c. 1922-26. This print is one of 18 designs published as supplements to "The Complete Works of Chikamatsu", which consisted of 16 volumes, plus two additional images.

This print measures approximately 8 7/8 x 14 7/8 inches, plus full margins. It is in wonderful condition, aside from some light toning. There is embossing in the background.
