Bijin near the foot of a bridge

Identifier: 1825c Kunisada bijin bridge
Description:

Near perfect to perfect color. However, some of the pink/reds, like those of the woman's undergarments, may have faded somewhat.

The woman's robe is decorated with large butterflies against a mesh netting, all printed in blue.

Despite this writer's particularly affection for this print, it is not absolutely perfect. If you enlarge it you will notice that there are any number of areas in the pines trees in the background where no color was printed at all and only the color of the paper shows through, but who cares?

****

This print has very much the look of being the left sheet of a triptych.
