The Courtesan Urazato and Tokijiro, 1851 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Courtesan Urazato and Tokijiro, 1851

Comments - Handsome kabuki scene of the courtesan Urazato entertaining her lover, Tokijiro in her private quarters. She tilts her head shyly as she bites on a cloth, watching her sweetheart out of the corners of her eyes. He stares back at her with a concerned frown as she stretches a towel between his hands. Urazato's employer has forbidden the beauty to see him, so they are taking a risk each time they meet. He wears a violet tie-dyed kimono patterned with peonies and butterflies and bordered with a black and gray interlocking geometric print. An alcove at left holds lacquer boxes with a floral arrangement in a basket on the wall above. An attractive design with a nicely detailed setting.

Artist - Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)
Image Size - 14 1/4" x 20" + top margin as shown
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Two separate panels. A few wormholes, repaired. Slight toning and soling, a few creases, slight rubbing at edges. Please see photos for details.
