Condition: Very toned. Multiple repairs mostly on the side as the paper is brittle. A couple of large wormholes repaired too. Fair overall condition.
Notes: Utamaro prints are very fragile. Most originals are in this actual condition or much worse, as the paper used was not that strong in the 18th century, and the prints were not very well stored.
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.
All our prints are guaranteed Authentic and Originals
