Original woodblock print - Toyohara Kunichika (1835-1900) - The Wife of Shogun Ienari 家斎公御台所 - From the series "The Backyard of Pines and Malvaceae" 葵艸松の裏苑 - 1879

Beautiful polychrome woodblock print by the artist Toyohara Kunichika, entitled "The midaidokoro of Ienari" (家斎公御台所) and depicting in the foreground Shimazu no Shigehime (島津茂姫), buddhist name Kodaiin (広大院), official wife of Tokugawa Ienari (徳川家斉), the shogun famous for the excesses that characterized his government.

The work, made in 1879 by the publisher Takegawa Seikichi (武川清吉), is taken from the series "The Backyard of Pines and Malvaceae" (葵艸松の裏苑). Remarkable, in the upper right corner, the decoration of the title depicting the triple hollyhock, the emblem of the Tokugawa clan.

The print on Japanese washi paper, despite the proper signs of aging including a small tear in the upper left corner, is in good general condition, thanks also to a relining carried out on the back. Left margin trimmed

The woodblock print will be well-packaged and shipped by registered mail with a tracking code.
