Beautiful, original woodblock print by ukiyo-e woodblock artist Utagawa Kunisada, also known as Toyokuni III (1786–1864). It is #22 in a series called Sono sugata Yukari no usushi-e, or "Stories of Reincarnated Beings". In the center of the print there is a young child, hunched forward as he eagerly listens to stories from an adult woman in a pink kimono with blue and grey sleeves, with a sheathed sword across her lap. A bowl of treats and a black lamp with flowers sits between them. Two young beauties in blue kimonos stand back and listen as well, one also holding a sheathed sword. The print is in a black frame with a cloth border, print information is listed on the back verifying that it is an original print. 19th century Size: (entire frame) 14" height, 18.5" width (print only) 8.5" height, 13" width
