Candy Peddler, 1854 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Candy Peddler, 1854

Comments - Interesting kabuki portrait of a candy peddler selling ame, a traditional Japanese sweet. The character, named oman-ga-ame, is actually a man dressed as a woman. Here, she spreads the sleeves of her black kimono out at her sides, almost like wings, a basket of candy beneath her arm at right. She looks to the side with a curious grin, a blue flowered hat tied beneath her chin. The inset at upper left depicts a man looking down with an enraged expression. The figures are set against a bright blue background. Nicely detailed with burnishing on the black kimono.

Artist - Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)
Image Size - 14 1/8" x 9 7/8"
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Horizontal centerfold. Stitching holes at side, repaired. Slight creasing and soiling. Please see photos for details.
