Ukiyo-e Utagawa Yoshikzau (1844-1866) - Nippori from Toto Meisho series - Izumiya Kichibei - Japan - 1853
Beautiful, authentic woodcut (Ukiyo-e) from handmade paper by the Japanese artist Utagawa Yoshikazu (1844-1866), attributed to Nippori from the 'Toto Meisho' series, published by Izumiya Kichibei in 1853. In good condition, colors slightly faded.
Utagawa Yoshikazu was born in Edo (Tokyo) where he lived the rest of his life. He began his printmaking career as a student of Kuniyoshi Utagawa. Yoshikazu is an important printmaker for the ukiyo-e genre of yokohama-e, woodblock prints depicting foreigners and Western attributes unknown to common people in Japan before the country's forced opening in 1854 in the Treaty of Kanagawa with the United States of America.
Yoshikazu often signed his prints with Ichikawa Yoshikazu.
