Toyohara Kunichika

From "Tosei Sanju-ni So" ("Thirty-two Fashionable Physiognomies"). One of Kunichika's major works. The series showcased still typical Ukiyo-e beauties but their face expressions and gestures were livelier and more personalized. These down-to-earth beauties were the harbinger of "the Meiji realism" which became increasingly popular during the mid - late Meiji period. 


Condition: Great condition, not backed, margins as shown.
