Ibasenban Fan Painting No.20 Sadahide, Firefly Hunting
- Unit Price
Ukiyoe Edo fan paintings (nishikie, Yamato-type) were produced by the publisher Ibasen as multicolor prints of fan paintings (uchiwa-e) by master printmakers Hiroshige and Kuniyoshi, who were descended from the Utagawa school. Ibasen printed and produced this work based on this only existing woodblock print.
This painting depicts a woman hunting fireflies by Sadahide, a pupil of Toyokuni. Fireflies were a summer custom in the Okawa River and other nearby streams in those days.
