Subject:Japanese wood print (?)
Posted By: David Wed, Jan 23, 2019 IP:

Just bought this at a flea market. It has been professionally framed and looks like it could be a Japanese woodprint.

Any information about the painting, seals or subject matter would be greatly appreciated!

Your print is by Utagawa Kunisada, printed in 1854, and titled 塩冶判官 高師直. For a less faded version, see the link below.
