Kitagawa Utamaro - Portrait of Tomimoto Toyohina


Recommended Posts

Hello dear forum members! 

A few days ago in one antiqe shop I found "The Lady Tomimoto Toyohina Reading a Letter" by Kitagawa Utamaro. I believe that the print is original, not a reprint later version. The condition is not perfect and has some issues, but it's a rare one. The print was a gift from a Japanese  diplomat to Bulgarian diplomat in 1979,  аnd there is a dedication written with a pencil on cardboard in Bulgarian language. This particular print it's in collection of Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ota memorial museum of art. 





Any guesses about authenticity and value?


Best regards,
