Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Nozarashi Gosuke
Series; Men of Ready Money with True Labels Attached, Kuniyoshi Fashion

Nozarashi Gosuke - Great kabuki portrait of the otokodate or street knight Nozarashi Gosuke. He stares to the side with a tight-lipped frown, one hand resting on the hilt of his sword. He carries his other sword over his shoulder, from which is suspended a wooden geta clog with an eerie resemblance to a skull and a tie made from a withered stalk of grass. He wears a blue outer robe with a design of grasses growing through skulls, over a black kimono with skulls made up of cats, and a red under robe with blossoms on it. A great expressive image, beautifully composed and detailed. The series title takes its name from a contemporary kabuki play.

This reprint - This terrific reprint is beautifully printed with excellent color and detail, in pristine condition. We rarely see this great design in reprint, so don't miss this opportunity to acquire a classic Kuniyoshi subject.
