Utagawa Kunisada Exhibition

 Utagawa  Kunisada (1786-1865) was the most prolific Ukiyo-E artist of his century. In his early career, Kunisada works were closely modeled after his teacher/mentor Utagawa Toyokuni (1769-1825). In his middle period, he was influenced by all of the major artists of the time. These sixteen impressions from the series Tokaido gojusan tsugi no ichi (The Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road), are a combination of the figurative style that Kunisada mastered in his middle period, married with the landscape style of his contemporary Ando Hiroshige (1797-1858).

 

The examples are from the first edition, printed between 1838 and 1842. They were published by two publishers, Sano-ya Kihei and Mori-ya Jihei. The colors and condition of each impression is excellent.

 

Attractively priced in acid free rag mats, they represent great value.

 

For our inaugural e-exhibition, a 10% discount and free shipping will be extended to all purchases thru May 15, 2012.

 

Watch closely for the announcement of our next e-exhibition. I intend to showcase our large and diverse inventory to keep our clients interested.

 

Enjoy!
