Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Angry Samurai in a Dragon Kimono
Fuji Arts Summer Triptych Project - We've come into a large estate collection of triptychs at Fuji Arts and we're posting them in groups of 50 "to go" ! The triptychs will be offered in our auctions all opening at $45 – a fraction of their retail value. High bid at or above $45 wins. Or, purchase "buy it now" before bidding starts at bargain fixed pricing. Either way, these original triptychs are likely to sell below cost.
This project needs to move quickly so we are posting the triptychs with our excellent photos, artist identification, and condition report only. That's it. If you are looking for more information on the posted items, the research is up to you.
These are original, 19th century Meiji and Edo era triptychs offered below dealer cost. Don't miss out on the Fuji Arts Summer Triptych Project! Act fast!
Comments - Great kabuki portrait of a samurai glaring angrily at a companion as he raises his sword upright. He wears a striking black kimono patterned with a fierce dragon over a blue robe, his hair sticking up atop his head with longer locks falling over his chest. At lower right, a woman warrior wearing a straw raincoat over a blue kimono with a dragon and a suit of armor frowns up at the bearded nobleman behind her. Nice expressive figures set against a red background bordered with a green simulated frame, detailed with burnishing on the black kimono and embossing on the white kimono collars.
