Traditional Japanese Woodblock female by pond Featured Print

Traditional Japanese Woodblock female by pond

Utagawa Toyokuni (1769, Edo - February 24, 1825, Edo) was born as the son of a puppet maker. He learned printmaking as a student of Toyoharu. At the beginning of his career he concentrated on bijin-ga - images of beautiful women. Toyokuni's success and fame came when he started making yakusha-e or actor portraits and actor scenes. This image dated 1861 and shows a actor and is probably the right hand side of a triptych of Bando Hikosaburo the famous actor. The female figure stands by a pond adorned with the tall Iris flowers, her clothing mirrors the colour scheme and forms part of my own private collection of original woodblock prints

Old lady telling stories to children Featured Print

Old lady telling stories to children

An old lady telling stories to a group of wide-eyed children. Her memories must relate to the 18th century, which these modern young Regency blades would think to be pre-historic! From "The Horkey - A Ballad" by Robert Bloomfield and illustrated by George Cruikshank; published by MacMillan & Co, London, 1882. The "ballad" is set in Suffolk, England and the Horkey is the harvest supper, or end-of-harvest celebratory meal
