Japanese Meiji Period woodblock print from the series "The Calendar of Events in Edo Theater" by Adachi Ginko (1874-1897) dated in the left margin Meiji 30 (1897) 1st month 11th day. The series depicts various scenes and events surrounding kabuki theater. This image depicts several actors and musicians on stage. One actor, holding a fan above his head, dances in bare feet. The red fish peering from behind his back suggests he might be a fisherman. Four actors sitting in a row behind him are all wearing masks that completely cover their heads. A description of the scene is in the white cartouche at the top. The series title is at the upper right. The artist’s signature and seal are at the lower right. Vertical oban print measuring 14 1/8"V x 9 7/8"H. Very good overall condition with excellent color. This print has never been framed or exposed to sunlight. There is no tape or tape stains and the print is not backed. The paper is slightly thinned in areas and there are some tiny spots scattered throughout the print. There is some bleeding of the artist's seal evident. We have about 15 prints from this series in stock. Please contact us if you are searching for a particular image.
