Kawarazaki Gonjuro I as Akushichibyoe Kagekiyo, 1861 by Kuniaki II (1835 - 1888)

Original Kuniaki II (1835 - 1888) Japanese Woodblock Print
Kawarazaki Gonjuro I as Akushichibyoe Kagekiyo, 1861

Comments - Terrific okubi-e or large head portrait of the great Taira warrior Akushichibyoe Kagekiyo grimacing with rage as he grips a naginata upright. His shorter hair sticks out atop his head, with longer locks curving around the side of his face and the rest pulled back over his shoulders. He wears a finely detailed kimono with a netted pattern over a suit of armor with black fur at the cuff. Beautifully detailed with incredibly fine line work in the hair. One of Kuniaki II's masterpieces.

Artist - Kuniaki II (1835 - 1888)
Image Size - 14" x 9 1/2"
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Backed with somewhat heavy paper. Slight toning and soiling. Please see photos for details.
