Original woodblock print - Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858) - 'Iris Garden at Horikiri' - From the series 'Famous Places in the Eastern Capital' - 1852
Part of y triptych, see Tokyo Edo Museum:
A very attractive original print by Hiroshige, with an image of a Bijin (美人 - beautiful woman) in the famous Iris garden in Horikiri. It is the right part of a triptych, signed Hiroshige ga 広重画.
The print was published in 1852 (Kaei 5, 8th month) by ujiokaya Keijirô (Shôrindô) with the censorship marks of Kinugasa and Murata.
Condition is fairly good, even though there are multiple wormholes, mostly on the right bottom, which show colour restoration. The figure itself is intact! The print does have good print quality with beautiful full lines and it has fairly heavy backing.
A very beautiful Bijin-ga depiction, which fills the print composition beautifully, and due to which the wormholes are not obtrusive.
The art print will be packaged with care and sent by registered mail with Bpost Tracking.
