19th Century Figural Prints- The 19th century was a time of great popularity for woodblock prints in Japan. While Hokusai and Hiroshige dominated the landscape print field, artists like Kuniyoshi, Kunisada (Toyokuni III), Kunichika and others were in the forefront of the figural print genre. These stunning prints from the kabuki, daily life, portraits of courtesans and samurai and famous scenes of Japan were hugely popular. New releases by the most famous artists were so anticipated that buyers lined up the morning a print was to be first offered. These beautiful antique prints are treasures from the Edo culture in its most decadent period. From portraits of stunning beauties to scenes of fighting samurai, these prints transport the viewer to another time, a place as compelling as it is unusual to us in the modern world.

Comments- A fantastic original 19th century Kuniyoshi print of a samurai in full armor and his horse. An impressive portrait of the young man and very finely done samurai piece. The great choice for the collector interested in these old samurai prints. This one is quite outstanding.

Signed- Kuniyoshi
Image size- 9 3/4" x 14"
Condition- Generally good condition overall as shown with excellent original color and fine detail. No holes, tears, repairs to report. This print is not backed. A few small holes have been repaired from reverse, not at all noticeable. Slightly wrinkled on surface, as shown (see photo). Nice overall and a good rare piece.
