AFTER UTAGAWA KUNIMASA 歌川国政 (JAPAN, 1773-1810) Kabuki actor Nakamura Noshio II as SakuramaruA Meiji period recarvingA large woodblock printFrom the album Nippon Mokuhan Ukiyoe Taikan38,4 x 25 cmCatalogue raisonné: Ukiyo-e shûka 9 (1981), list #1.019Notes:1. Utagawa Kunimasa was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist of the Utagawa school. He was originally from Aizu in Iwashiro Province and first worked in a dye shop after arriving in Edo (modern Tokyo). It was there that he was noticed by Utagawa Toyokuni, to whom he became apprenticed. Kunimasa is especially known for his yakusha-e portrait prints of kabuki actors, and for his bijin-ga pictures of beautiful women. Richard Lane described his style as striving to ‘combine the intensity of Sharaku with the decorative pageantry of his master Toyokuni’.2. This print depicts Kabuki actor Nakamura Nojio II in the role of Sakuramaru in the play, ‘Sugawara’ performed at Miyako-za Theater in May, 1796.3.
