Description

This image is one of 48 in an album of Japanese woodblock prints.

Most of the prints are attributed to one of the late print masters of the Edo period, Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798-1861). Kuniyoshi separated himself from other artists in his choice of subject matter, creating pieces that celebrated warriors, entertainers, and cats.

Many of Kuniyoshi’s prints are diptychs or triptychs. The diptychs in this collector’s album include two pages, while the triptychs require an extra page that folds out.
