Subject:Need help identifying artist, art style, and value of Print
Posted By: LindsJ Thu, Apr 12, 2018 IP: 2604:2d80:c407:8be8:

I posted one print previously. Here is the other.
I'm looking for translation and identification assistance for 2 prints by the same artist. I'd love to know the artist, origin, style and any value possibly associated with the art. Thank you for any and all help.

This is a modern reproduction of a Japanese woodblock print by Sharaku. It has decorative value only. Sharaku prints are very rare and valuable. Here is an original at the Boston MFA:

Translation of label (also a part of inscription)
Toshusai Shuraku
(-1794-)
Important Cultural Property
Picture of Segawa Kikunojo in Role of Oshizu,
Wife of Ogishi Sai
Depository of Tokyo National Museum

On the Google you will find lot of pages in English, about Sharaku and Toshusai.
The value of these reprinted woodblock prints
varies between 50-120 US$.
