Good condition, see description
Early original woodblock print by Utagawa Kunisada (1786-1865) - Kabuki actor Onoe Kikugoro as Agemaki of the Miuraya - Japan - 1822
On a ticker, luxurious Japanese washi paper, in good condition. Original: no backing, no rubbing. Colors faded. Minor paper-loss lower right corner.
Onoe Kikugoro was the most celebrated onnagata of his generation. Onnagata are kabuki actors that specialize in female roles as all parts were, and still are, played by men in traditional kabuki theater. The purple headband worn by the actor covers the pate of his head, which was shaved when young men became adults.
Signed: "Gototei Kunisada ga".
With Kiwame-censor-seal, as used between 1815-1842.
Published by Yamaguchiya Tobei (Kinkodo).
Size is 26.3 x 38.7cm (!) (large oban).
I used 2 scans to cover the complete oban-sizes, pictures might show the copy/paste-lines.
Will be sent protected by acid-free paper, under heavy card-boards, fully insured.
