Japanese woodblock print by Adachi Ginko (1874-1897) depicting the actor Ichikawa Udanji, whose career began in 1862, portraying a samurai standing with a naginata and bloodied in battle. Signed at the upper right, but artist unidentified. Dates from the late 1860's to circa 1870 (early Meiji). Very good overall condition with excellent color. Japanese album paper backed. Margins evident at the top and bottom. Paper size: 14 3/4"V x 9 1/8"H. There is some blue pigment transfer to the back which does not bleed through to the front.
