Original Yasuji Inoue (1864 - 1889) Japanese Woodblock Print
Sumo Wrestlers, 1889
Comments - Handsome portrait of two sumo wrestlers in street attire, the man at right wearing a black jacket over a blue kimono tucked into striped green pants, a fan in hand. An inset behind the figures shows a view of the water framed by blossoming cherry trees with a stone lantern at right. The background is shaded from purple to white to green. An attractive design.
