A prolific pupil of Eizan. Shows a carp swimming among water-weed. Blue ground. An extremely rare print. Published by Ezakiya, c 1843-6. There is another version of this print without censor’s seal and with a moon reflected in the water. This appears to be a copy of the impression offered here as the blocks vary slightly. Ex Vever collection, Sothebys 1977, Part III, lot 227, p. 120 ( who also sold the copy, lot 228 ).

Fine impression, colour and condition. Signed Keisai.

Status: Sold
