[PAINTING ALBUM] TOSHINDO, artist. [A HUMOROUS ALBUM OF INDELICATE LADIES, c. 1880] 22 x 13.8 cm, Orihon folding album in raw silk covered boards. Shibata Toshindo was married into the Shibata family, her original family name was Niwa and birthplace Nagoya. The brother of one artist and married to another, she became a student of Tsukioka Yoshitoshi and developed her skills as a painter of beautiful women. In this album she has turned her brush to a more humorous angle. In a series of 12 double page paintings she has recast the traditional "farting scroll" genre to the feminine side. Feats of strength, wrestling, games, even the ultimate farting contest, performed by robed and (hopefully) perfumed ladies. Fun and obviously irreverent. In very good condition. Quite skillful with a sure line.

Price: $2,400.00
