Edo Period Japanese woodblock print by Toyokuni III (also known as Kunisada) depicting an actor portraying a samurai standing in a garden under a blossoming cherry tree, published by Maruya Jinpachi in 1861. Signed "Toyokuni ga" (in a red cartouche with yellow snow). Measures 14 3/8"V x 9 5/8"H. Very good color and overall condition with embossed and mica highlights. The actor's entire kimono is highlighted in lacquer. The print is not backed and the baren marks and image are clearly visible on the back. It appears to be a panel from a triptych. There are two faint adhesive stains at the top back corners.
