Iwafuji Berating Onoe, 1855 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Iwafuji Berating Onoe, 1855

Comments - Terrific scene from the kabuki play commonly known as "Kagamiyama." The jealous senior lady-in-waiting, Iwafuji, has plotted the downfall of her junior, Onoe, by exchanging a sandal for a valuable statue in Onoe's care. Here, Iwafuji creates a scene after pretending to discover the zori sandal in place of the statue. She holds the sandal threateningly over her head, glaring angrily at Onoe, who kneels quietly in the center, watching the evil matron out of the corners of her eyes. Onoe's loyal young maid, Ohatsu, eavesdrops at left, alarmed at the treatment her mistress is receiving. A great illustration from this well-known play, with fine detail in the elegant interior setting and a burnished geometric pattern on Iwafuji's black kimono.
