Oiso: Soga Juro and Oiso no Tora, 1854
Series; The Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido by Two Brushes

Oiso: Soga Juro and Oiso no Tora, 1854 - Attractive design from a collaborative Tokaido series by Hiroshige and Toyokuni III. In the foreground, Toyokuni III depicts Soga Juro, the elder of the two Soga Brothers, looking down with a worried, unhappy expression, his hands clasped before him. At right, his sweetheart, the courtesan Oiso no Tora, uses a tissue to wipe clean a comb, watching her companion with dismay, her mouth slightly agape. The sleeves of her red kimono are tied back with a purple sash, and her hair is styled in a looped ponytail. Above, Hiroshige shows a view of Oiso, with the village at lower right and pines and what look like stone markers dotting the sloping hillside. Nicely detailed with embossing on the white kimono collar and trim.
