Princess Terute; The Ghost of Ofuji by Kunichika (1835 - 1900)

Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Princess Terute; The Ghost of Ofuji
Series: Stories of Good and Evil Women, 1881

Stories of Good and Evil Women - Interesting print from a rare 1881 series by Kunichika featuring portraits of good and evil women. These chuban format scenes depict beauties from different time periods and walks of life, from elegant courtesans and noblewomen demonstrating loyalty and faithfulness to women attacking or killing others. The series is not well documented, and we've only seen a handful of designs from it. The settings are nicely detailed and vibrantly colored, and it is unusual to find uncut pages with two images. A rare and intriguing series.

Artist - Kunichika (1835 - 1900)
Image Size - Approximately 14" x 9 1/4" + margins as shown (not individually measured)
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Paper remnants on reverse at corners from previous mounting. Some prints have slight soiling or a few creases. Please see photos for details. Generally in good condition overall.
