Ebay Art Club

9.11

Has anyone found anything really worth looking at on Ebay lately? If so, please share. Here is a commemorative (not sure in what spirit, exactly) 9/11 disaster rug from Afghanistan. Bidding has ended for this one, sorry. I’m just keeping it in my “watching” pile. Today I found an interesting woodblock print of two dead fish in a basket by Kyosai, c. 1880. The auction runs for 1 day and 6 six more hours, as of this posting. Also see two ducks tearing apart a striped lizard in the same folio. I like the background note supplied by the seller: ” Kyosai studied as a child under Kuniyoshi. He was greatly influenced by the work of Hokusai as well as rice wine (sake) which he consumed in large quantities.” How do you cut a woodblock while drinking? The guy must have been really good.
