Kiyomitsu (1735 - 1785) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Actor Ichikawa Danjuro IV

Publisher - Adachi from a rare series of Edo masterwork designs. Adachi publisher seal in margin or on reverse.

Adachi was one of the most respected publishers of the 20th century. Their woodblocks were printed to the highest standards with excellent color and fine detail. Founded in 1925, Adachi also chose interesting and varied subjects for their prints and was the only publisher of many famous old ukiyo-e images.

Comments - Handsome kabuki portrait of the actor Ichikawa Danjuro IV in one of his famous roles as the fierce samurai Kagekiyo. He is shown in stage makeup breaking down the gate of his prison cell, his robe flying about him as he kicks out one foot and throws out his arm. Nice early print design and an interesting format for framing.

Artist - Kiyomitsu (1735 - 1785)
Image Size - 12 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Condition - Excellent overall with no issues to report.
