An Imaginary Thirty-six Poets

Artist: Kunisada
Format: Oban tate-e: 14.5" x 10"

Subject: This series of portraits capitalizes on the success of the half-length 'Actors on the Tokaido' series. Once again actors are shown against landscapes, this time with foreground and background separated by a cloud device. The Thirty-six immortal poets were the outstanding Japanese poets from the time of the Manyoshu anthology to the end of the 10th century. One of Kunisada's best printed sets of bust portraits.

Publisher: Iseya Kanekichi

Date: 1852

Condition: Very fine colors. Very minor marks and flaws. A small area of offsetting from another print on the poet's elbow. Generally very fine state of preservation.

Impression: Superb impression with gauffrage, lacquer on the collar of the kimono and strong woodgrain visible in the background. Printed on high quality de luxe paper.
