Original woodblock print - Utagawa Ichiyotei Yoshitaki (1841-99) - Kabuki actor Nakamura Sōjurō 中村宗十郎 as Abe Sadanobu 阿部貞信 - Japan - approx. 1860s
Kamigata print by Utagawa Yoshitaki 歌川芳滝 (1841-1899) with the representation of actors (yakusha-e) in a scene from the kabuki theatre.
Kamigata of Osaka prints (Kamigata-e 上方絵 ) are in sharp contrast to the wide variety of subjects in Edo prints. They mainly show actors in scenes from the kabuki theatre, with rare exceptions for other subjects.
They are also characterised by the more refined finish using all kinds of techniques and a more luxurious edition. Precious metal pigments (gold and silver) are also often used to lend the prints more shine and appearance.
Usually the chuban size is used.
Condition: quite good, small restoration wormhole, somewhat spotty, colourful print (Nishiki-e) with the use of metal pigments. Normal signs of age.
The print will be carefully packaged and shipped registered with Bpost tracking.
