||Kunisada (Toyokuni III)|
||Three courtesans, Tsukasa, Okuraei and Kumotori, viewing cherry blossoms.|
||Creped print (reduced from oban size) (7 1/2" X 10 1/2")|
||An excellent example of what happens to a print when it is creped. The paper is bunched together in both directions so it shrinks evenly and acquires the texture of crepe fabric|
while deepening the dyes.
