Inōe Yasuji: Night Scene in the Yoshiwara
Artist: Inōe Yasuji
Title: Night Scene in the Yoshiwara
Date: 1880 (Meiji 13)
“Scene of Cherry Blossoms at Night in the New Yoshiwara” (Shin Yoshiwara yozakura kei). Three people strolling in this famous pleasure district turn to look at the arrival of a bowler-hatted visitor arriving by rickshaw. Yasuji’s prints are rarer than prints by Kiyochika, although they are stylistically quite similar. He died tragically young, at age 25.
Condition: Very good impression, color and condition.
