Description

Precious original woodblock print made around 1830 by the famous artist Keisai Eisen (渓斎英泉), entitled “Cherry Blossoms in Full Bloom on the Banks of the Sumida River” (隅田堤桜盛) and depicting a bijin (美人) beauty on a spring day during the hanami (花見). In the right part of the work, in the background, stands Mount Fuji (富士山).

The print of vertical large oban (大判) format was produced by the publisher Ezakiya Tatsuzo (江崎屋辰蔵), owner of Sengyokudo (専玉堂), and is the left panel of a triptych.

The woodcut on Japanese washi paper (和紙), despite the right signs of aging, is in very good general condition.
