Japanese Meiji Period “kuchi-e” (magazine frontispiece) woodblock print by Kaburagi Kiyokata (1878-1973) dating circa 1900. The print depicts two beauties at leisure viewing the ocean. Two cups of tea and an assortment of sea shells are beside them. One beauty holds a long pipe. Measures just under 11"V x 8 3/8"H. “Kuchi-e” woodblock printed illustrations were folded and inserted into the front of literary magazines and popular novels. Good color and overall condition. Not backed. Two typical horizontal fold marks. Trimmed and with some fraying of the paper edges at the bottom. Light wear and soiling.
