Streetwalker in Autumn Moonlight
1839-1892, Japanese

A beautiful color woodblock print by Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, considered the last great master of the ukiyo-e genre of woodblock printing and painting. This 1887 image is from his series "100 Aspects of the Moon" which included 100 oban size woodblocks, between 1885-1892, in which the moon appears in all but a few providing a unifying motif for the series. This image measures 13 x 8 7/8 inches, signed and sealed on the l.l., engraver and publisher info on the l.l. border, poem by the female poet Oshun Hitotose, u.r., Stevenson 49.

Painting

A Sunlit Path
1837-1908, American

Oil on canvas, 20 x 14 inches in a 25 by 18 1/2 gold period frame. Because this has only a partial signature we are only able to attribute this work to Alfred Bricher. Upon cleaning of the painting, a partial signature was revealed in the lower left. The technique and composition also is very similar to many well known works by this artist. There is an area at the lower edge of this painting which has been inpainted but not the signature...The frame appears to be the original one. We feel the setting of this work might be from Lake George N.Y.
