HARUNOBU (c 1724 - 1770)

Courtesan Oshu of the Hyogoya
Series: Ehon Yoshiwara Seiro Bijin Awase
Publisher: Funaki Kasuke
c 1770

Chuban. Generally very good impression and colors. Some minor stains and dirt mainly in margins.

According to the National Diet Library, Japan: The Seiro Bijin Awase is a priceless masterpiece of Japanese art. It also possesses historic value in the development of printing techniques in Japan. In addition, the courtesans' behavior, the clothes they wear and the objects they use are worth observing because they show us many aspects of the Japanese culture.

This compares to the NDL #14 in their group.
