This is an original woodblock print from 1896 printed on very fine rice paper.
The frame, made to look like bamboo is painted in black with some gold accents. It measures 15 1/2" x 11 1/8" while the print itself (without the backing paper) measures 13" x 9".
The subject is often called "Boat Racing" referring to the top portion of the print where a boat is shown being vigorously raced.
The condition is excellent. Out of the frame the colors appear more vivid. Really lovely detail - see the comb in her hair with birds.
Since the framing dates from the late 50s or early 1960's it should be redone with all archival materials to further preserve this wonderful print.
Chikanobu (1838-1912) is a well-recognized ukiyo-e artist. Many of his prints have been represented and sold through very reputable auction houses. We are in the process of listing three other Chikanobu prints acquired from the same estate and all are framed the same way.
