Original woodblock print - Toyohara Kunichika (1835-1900) - "The Sound of a Breeze" from the series "Embellishments for a Set of 36 Immortal Flowers" (潤色三十六花撰) - 1881

Though the arrival of autumn / is not yet visible / anywhere / I suddenly noticed it / by the sound of the fluttering breeze (秋来ぬと 目にはさやかに 見えねども 風の音にぞ おどろかれぬる). The verses of the nobleman and poet Fujiwara no Toshiyuki (藤原敏行), shown in the central box of the upper part of this woodblock print, accompany the depiction of the famous courtesan Komurasaki (小紫), of the Kadoebiro (角海老楼) pleasure house, and Osono (おその) who, behind her, protects with a fan the fire of a candle from the wind that in the background shakes the sudare (簾) blinds of the Matsuya (松屋) restaurant in Saruwakacho (猿若町).

The work is taken from the series "Embellishments for a Set of Thirty-six Immortal Flowers" (潤色三十六花撰), made in 1881 by the artist Toyohara Kunichika (豊原国周) and printed by the publisher Takegawa Seikichi (武川清吉).

The print on Japanese washi paper (和紙), despite the right signs of aging, is in good general condition, thanks also to a relining carried out on the back.

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

    Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.
    Dear a-marius,

    first of all let me point out that the "final delivery" indication does not come from us sellers or even from Catawiki. The "final delivery" indication comes from the postal service.

    Secondly, I give you the following links to track the package according to Japan Post (https://trackings.post.japanpost.jp/services/srv/sequenceNoSearch/?requestNo=&count=&moveIndividual.x=144&moveIndividual.y=16&moveIndividual=Tracking+by+serial+number&locale=en) and PostNL (https://www.internationalparceltracking.com/#/search).

    If the post tracking gives indications that differ from reality, the advice we give you is to contact the PostNL customer service and ask for clarification.

    That said, we remain at your disposal. If we can do something from here from Tokyo, let us know and we will be happy to cooperate.

    We await your news regarding shipment updates.

    Best regards.
    Luigi Mascellino
