Japanese Edo Woodblock Print Kunisada Hiroshige Pride
Japanese woodblock print depicting a beauty and her cat sitting before a writing table. Books, scrolls and a bouquet of flowers are on the table. While reading a document, the beauty glances out a window to see a plume of smoke rising. This image is from the series "Thirty-six Examples of the Pride of Edo" by Hiroshige II (1829-1869) and Toyokuni III (1786-1865), who was also known as Kunisada. The series dates 1864. The artists' signatures are contained within the cartouches at the lower left portion of the image. The titles of the image and series are at the upper right. Vertical oban print measuring 13"V x 9"H. The print is not backed and the baren marks are clearly visible on the reverse side. The color is relatively good with yellow and green colors still evident. The print has several folds and the back shows soiling along the folds. There are some small holes and thinned areas. Traces of paper are adhered to the top back. The margins were trimmed and the edge is slightly frayed. Fair impression quality.
