YOSHITAKI Ichiyôsai (1841-1899)
Onoe Tamizo as Ani Yokozo (top), Arashi Rikaku as Otouto Jihizo
Mitate Genji Gojûyojô no Uchi
(Allusions to the Fifty-four Chapters of Tale of Genji)
, 18.2 x 25.4 cm
Fine impression and color, extensive use of metallic pigments and lacquer printing, which may have reflected the flash. Very good condition, light album backing, slight soil.
This series seems to be rare among Yoshitaki’s work and is not often encountered. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts has several examples.
