Toyokuni (1769-1825) is best known for his actor and women woodblocks. This scene of 2 young bijin seated in front of a brazier is from the series "36 Famous Beauties", circa 1820. Very good lines, and I like especially the artistic device showing the warmth flowing from the heater across the 2 figures. Image showing 9 by 13 inches. Matted and set in an older bamboo motif frame. Frame size about 12 by 16 inches. Slight fading on the print. Otherwise both print and frame in good condition.

A very charming antique woodblock with good colors. And the blue on the kimono is almost midnight blue.
