Traditional Japanese Woodblock female by pond

Utagawa Toyokuni (1769, Edo - February 24, 1825, Edo) was born as the son of a puppet maker. He learned printmaking as a student of Toyoharu. At the beginning of his career he concentrated on bijin-ga - images of beautiful women. Toyokuni's success and fame came when he started making yakusha-e or actor portraits and actor scenes. This image dated 1861 and shows a actor and is probably the right hand side of a triptych of Bando Hikosaburo the famous actor. The female figure stands by a pond adorned with the tall Iris flowers, her clothing mirrors the colour scheme and forms part of my own private collection of original woodblock prints
