Kuniyoshi: Fan Print of a Mask Seller
Artist: Utagawa Kuniyoshi
Title: Fan Print of a Mask Seller
The Actors Segawa Michinosuke as the masseuse Cholobokure and Sawamura Totsusho as Hanamizukiri. Sawamura Totsusho holds a flowering cherry branch with hanging masks as his female companion holds both a shamisen and a sake cup. Behind them is a pastoral scene. This seems to be the exact print shown on the Kuniyoshi.net website. An early, rare design.
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition. Repaired binding holes right margin.
