Original Ginko (active 1874 - 1897) Japanese Woodblock Print
Iwai Hanshiro as Ohyaku, 1874
Comments - Intriguing kabuki scene of Iwai Hanshiro as the beauty Ohyaku, grinning happily as she bobs in the water beside a ship, hanging onto a rope with both hands as waves splash against her. At upper right, a text panel takes the form of a book folded open. A handsome design, nicely composed, with fine line work in the hair.
