Beautiful woodblock print of the kuchi-e (口絵) type, taken from the famous literary magazine Bungei Kurabu (文芸倶楽部) published by Hakubunkan (博文館). The work was made in 1906 by the artist Tsutsui Toshimine (筒井年峰) and is titled "Hortensia and Beauty" (あじさいと美人).

Tsutsui Toshimine (1863 - 1934) was born in the prefecture of Hyogo (兵庫県) and was probably a pupil of the famous Tsukiyoka Yoshitoshi (月岡芳年), as can be deduced from the fact that his name is mentioned on the memories of the latter. An illustrator for newspapers and magazines, in the first decade of the twentieth century he concentrated on the front pages of the novels.

The print on Japanese washi paper (和紙), despite the right signs of aging, is in good general condition.
