Japanese Edo period woodblock print depicting a beauty and her samurai lover from a series titled "The Seven Variations of the Iroha" by Toyokuni III (also known as Kunisada) dated 1856. "Iroha" refers to a distinct form of Japanese poetry. The publisher's seal, censor's seals and signature of the artist (signed "Toyokuni ga" in a red cartouche with yellow snow) are all located at the lower left. Standard vertical oban print measuring 14 1/8"V x 10"H. Very good color and overall condition with vibrant yellow. The baren marks and image are clearly visible on the back. Not backed. There is some thinning of the paper evident at the margin edges and there is a small spot on the beauty's cheek (see enlargement 3).
