Diptych, Original woodblock print - Utagawa Kunisada II (1823-1880) - A bustling hill by the Sumida River (隅田川岡の賑ひ) - 1856

Elegant diptych of woodcuts, left and center panels of a triptych made in 1856 by Utagawa Kunisada II, depicting two courtesans oiran, in the company of a young kamuro, enjoying cherry blossoms on a terrace overlooking the Sumida River. The woman on the right is holding a fan on which she has just executed a refined calligraphic exercise.

The title of the work, made by the publisher Iseya Kanekichi (伊勢屋兼吉) and the carver Yokogawa Takejiro (横川竹二郎), is visible on the missing right panel and is "A bustling hill by the Sumida River" (隅田川岡の賑ひ).

The two prints are glued together by a relining carried out on the back with a thick cardboard and have the right signs of the time, especially on the upper part.

The woodblock print will be well-packaged and shipped by registered mail with a tracking code.
