Welcome to Prints with a Past. Since 1997 we have shared our love of original antique and vintage prints with our clients. The business grew out of our enjoyment in antiquing while living in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and collecting prints for our home and to give as gifts. We take great pride in presenting a diverse selection of original engravings and lithographs from the late 1700s through early 1900s, and sharing the story about each one. —Your hosts, Nancy and Dick Bossler.
Why we love this
Original lithograph of a Japanese actor based on an illustration by the print designer and painter Okumura Masanobu (1686-1764). Shown is an actor portraying a man of privilege as shown by his clothing and that he is a falconer. Masanobu's art reflects the ukiyo-e style ("pictures of the floating world"), popular during the Japanese Edo period (1603-1868). Conservation matted. Image, 6.5" x 12"H; overall, 13"L x 18"H. Includes a certificate with additional information.
