Actors Nakamura Nakazo and Matsumoto Koshiro by Hokusai
Artist: Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849)
Woodblock Prints Title: Actors Nakamura Nakazo and Matsumoto Koshiro
1st Publication: 1795
Size: Hoso-ban; 5-1/2" x 12" (30 x 14 cm)
Date of this edition: 1795, 1st edition
Condition: Remnants from prior mounting on the upper corners. It seems that the yellow color was added posthumously back on the print probably in the early 1900's. Most of the colors are faded, consistent with almost all 1790's prints of actors. Very good overall condition, especially without any tears, wormholes
Notes: This print is very rare. Only few actors prints are left from that time frame, in such good overall condition, especially since the paper is very thin.
Pictures: Pictures are taken outdoor, in the shade, to reflect true colors, without any enhancements of any kind. The last picture is taken indoor, with a light behind the print, to reveal the exact paper grain, holes if any, or other possible flaws.
