: On recent trip purchased my first ukiyo-e print. Was purchased in an Arts D'Asie shop in Paris..Owner identified work as a Kunisada.. Two side by side panels..Ones depicts man appearing agast..other panel depicts woman holding large pot over her head and a second women between her legs..Owner of shop said story is that of woman finding out husband unfaithful about to kill mistress with pot and something alluding to ghost..How can I find out authenticity of print..I live in N.Y. metropolitan area.
Try Ronin Gallery on Madison and 56-57th st.
If you can scan and email the prints they could probably
tell you. Their web address is:
You could also go to this page showing all of Kunisada's various
signatures. He changed his name to Toyokuni later in his career (1844)
at the request of the Toyokuni family, so his signatures after that point
I hope this helps your search,
