Japanese woodblock print depicting a beauty lighting a floor lamp titled “Kakinomoto no Hitomaro” (image no. 3) from the series “One Hundred Poems by One Hundred Poets” (Hyakunin-isshu Emyo) by Utagawa Kunisada (1786-1865) published by Sanoya Kihei in 1844. The image is signed “Kunisada changing his name to Toyokuni II” with the red Toshidama seal below. The two cartouches in the shape of playing cards at the upper left hold a picture of a poet and his poem. The scroll-shaped cartouche at the upper right holds the series title and an explanation of the poem. Standard oban print measuring 14 3/8"V x 9 7/8"V. Good overall condition and color. The stamp of H. Takemura & Co., Yokohama, Japan is on the back. There is some soiling evident and there are some old repairs to the paper at the edges and a little wear to a corner. This series is described and illustrated on plate 174 of “Catalogue of the Van Gogh Museum’s Collection of Japanese Prints,” Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, 1991.
