The Immortal Poets, 1879
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

The Immortal Poets, 1879 - Interesting kabuki scene featuring two of Japan's famous Six Immortal Poets, set against a backdrop of blossoming plum trees with poem slips tied to them, the verses fluttering in the breeze. At bottom, a mustachioed nobleman looks up with a rather alarmed expression as the monk behind him dances about. Nicely detailed with burnishing on the black court cap and the black edge of the fan.

Image Size - 14" x 9 3/8" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Slight paper remnants on reverse at edges from previous mounting. Horizontal centerfold. Slight soiling at edges, a few creases. Please see photos for details.
