Ichimura Kakitsu IV as Sentaro, 1861 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Ichimura Kakitsu IV as Sentaro, 1861
From an untitled series of actors with poems

Actors with Poems - Terrific kabuki print from an untitled series by Toyokuni III dating from 1861 to 1864. Each print features a half-length portrait of a popular actor in an imagined role, accompanied by a poem in a wood grain cartouche. Gengyo Miyagi designed most of the attractive landscape backgrounds. Dating from the last years of his life, these images demonstrate Toyokuni III's skill in creating expressive and finely nuanced portraits. Many feature luxurious printing touches, such as burnishing or embossing, including delicate allover cloth embossing in the backgrounds. A fine actor series by the artist, and a wonderful choice for the kabuki enthusiast.

Artist - Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)
Image Size - 13 1/8" x 9 1/8" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. A few small wormholes, repaired. Slight soiling. Please see photos for details.
