Original Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) and Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Kiyomizuro Restaurant:Ichikawa Danjuro VIII as Kiyomizu Seigen, 1852
Series; Famous Restaurants of the Eastern Capital

Famous Restaurants of the Eastern Capital - Handsome print from a collaborative series by Toyokuni III and Hiroshige, published between 1852 and 1853. Toyokuni III created the large actor portraits in the foreground, with Hiroshige designing the smaller landscape and still-life insets relating to the featured restaurant or its location. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts has many of these images in its collection. These attractive designs are beautifully colored and detailed, making them a great choice for a collector interested in Edo era woodblocks.

Kiyomizuro Restaurant:Ichikawa Danjuro VIII as Kiyomizu Seigen, 1852 - Fine portrait of Ichikawa Danjuro VIII as the monk Kiyomizu Seigen in the play "Isshin Futakawa Shiramichi." He looks over his shoulder with a solemn frown, a string of prayer beads dangling from this sleeve of his robe. He wears a yellow floral patterned monk's mantle over his kimono, a blue scarf wrapped around his neck. The scene at left for the Kiyomizuro Restaurant shows a cutting board with food on it and a bowl on the floor nearby, and the landscape inset provides a view of the shore at Sakurada-kubomachi. A handsome design.
