Angyûsai Enshi (act. c. 1770 – 1790s)

An encounter between three young Edo beauties and an elegant young man at the time of the cherry blossom on the bustling Ueno temple grounds.

Signature: Angyûsai Enshi ga

Publisher: not stated

Date: c. 1790

Size: Vertical Oban, 36,1 x 24,2 cm

Excellent, detailed impression. Colours somewhat faded, still good. Paper with some age soiling, traces of creasing. A few very small holes expertly repaired. Overall very good condition.

A very elegant depiction of greatest rarity. Hardly anything is known about the artist, and only a few of his prints have survived. Supposedly a pupil of Katsukawa Shunshô, his style shows influences by Torii Kiyonaga and Chôbunsai Eishi. See Roberts, Dictionary, p. 24.
For a detailed description of the triptych, with the present print as the middle sheet see Basil Stewart, Subjects Portrayed in Japanese Colour-Prints, London 1922, p. 345. The left sheet is in the collection of the MFA Boston, Spaulding Coll., No. 21.8187.
