|Format:||Large Oban - 大大判,|
|Condition:||Near pristine condition. Full margins. No tears, folds, foxing, or stains. Gorgeous mica background, and strong embossing to hat, hair, and entire margin border. Excellent unfaded colour, strong impression and ink penetration into thick washi. Never been framed. Near-invisible light crease lower right corner.|
|Notes:||This print has Kotondo's "Kiyotada" signature and seal within the upper left cartouche. Kotondo called himself Torii Kiyotada V (The eighth-- not fifth -- Torii master) in 1958 (according to his daughter), after the death of his adoptive father Kiyotada IV (The seventh Torii master). Kotondo's kabuki actor series display his continued attention to detailed printing and production quality.
