A pair of Japanese Woodcuts that originally were three panels. They were joined at the left side to form a complete picture of a Geisha in a sedan chair with a handkerchief in her mouth, a coy gesture, viewed by an admirer. I don't read Japanese but I think the calligraphy on each panel identifies the Kabuki actors. This is possibly the work of Konishi Hirosada, Circa 1847-1863. Both woodcuts have paper loss on the left side of each panel. They are placed on a grey silk ground and framed in silver leaf frames. The images are 14.25 by 9 5/8". Framed size is 17.25" by 12.25".
