Description
This wonderfully stylish print is dated 9/1832 by Shunbaisai Hokuei who was active from about 1824 to 1837 was a designer of ukiyo-e style Japanese woodblock prints in Osaka.

Kabuki actor Yukihira dances among the windswept pines along the seashore which was derived from the legend of Matsukaze, a fourteenth-century NĂ´ play, Matsukaze (her name means "Wind in the Pines") goes mad with grief and dances while wearing his robe and eboshi ("bird hat," a tall hat made of paper or silk, stiffened with black lacquer and secured by a silk cord, worn by male aristocrats of the imperial court.

This print forms part of my own ephemera collection.
