Kunisada II: Deluxe Kabuki Portraits

Kunisada II: Deluxe Kabuki Portraits Ronin Gallery Ronin Annex View Works

As "stars" of the Edo period, kabuki actors were high-profile icons of their time. They were idolized and worshipped by a fanatical public and ukiyo-e artists looked to them as invigorating subjects. The Ronin Gallery is pleased to present a collection of 28 kabuki art portraits from the series 'Stories of Satomi Hakkenden', also know The Eight Dog Heros by Utagawa Kunisada II. All of these prints are early deluxe printings with brilliant colors and careful bokashi, lacquers, mica and embossing.
