Kameyama in Ise Province by Kunisada II (1823 - 1880)

Original Kunisada II (1823 - 1880) Japanese Woodblock Print
Kameyama in Ise Province
Series; Calligraphy and Pictures for the Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido, 1872

Calligraphy and Pictures for the Fifty-three Stations - Terrific design from a Tokaido Road series pairing images with verses in calligraphy for the different stations. Different artists contributed designs, including Yoshitora and Kunisada II. The large pictures include landscapes, figures from history and legend, and scenes from kabuki plays and folktales. Several prints feature comic illustrations, including the adventures and mishaps of Kita and Yaji, the bumbling travelers from the popular novel "Shank's Mare." Others include travelers in Western attire or distinctly modern Meiji subjects. These imaginative prints are beautifully detailed with attractive color and fine line work, and offer an interesting Meiji era take on the classic Tokaido subject. A great choice for collectors interested in life along the Tokaido Road.

Kameyama in Ise Province - Terrific design of a samurai on horseback confronted by two angry warriors. The young men are ready to fight, their kimono sleeves tied back with purple sashes to keep them out of the way. The fellow at left draws his sword as he scowls up at the nobleman, who grips the reins of his dappled horse with one hand, throwing his other hand open in surprise. He glares back at his attackers, his brows deeply furrowed. A lively, colorful scene with wonderfully expressive faces. The calligraphy inset at upper left features delicate cloth embossing in the background. A handsome subject.
