'Mosquito Net', from the Series 'Contest of Contemporary Beauties of the Pleasure Quarters'

This print depicts a man behind a mosquito net and two women, one lifting the mosquito net to offer the man a fan and the other standing observing. The original print dates to c1780, and this print dates to c1920. Its size is 15" x 10". The print's lower and right margins are trimmed as shown in the photos, along with generalized handling edge wear and creases, but it would frame nicely under a mat. The name Kiyonaga is written in pencil on the lower verso.                          P8011     $65.00
