item#: 794135
price: $500.00
Edo Period Japanese woodblock print triptych by Kunisada (also known as Toyokuni III) depicting actors portraying a scene from the kabuki theater. Published by Yamazakiya Seishichi in 1855. Each panel bears the signature "Toyokuni ga" in a red cartouche with yellow snow, a publisher's seal, date seal, and censor's seal (see enlargement 5). Each panel measures about 14 1/2"V x 9 3/4" - 10"H. Very good overall condition with margins. The triptych is not backed and the baren marks and image are clearly visible on the back. No tape or tape stains. The panels line up very well. There is an old, well executed repair to the bottom of the left panel which has eliminated some detail on the figure's foot (see enlargement 10).
