Karukaya Doshin Refuses to Recognize Ishidomaru by Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892)

Original Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) Japanese Woodblock Print
Karukaya Doshin Refuses to Recognize Ishidomaru

Comments - Fine illustration of the young boy Kato Ishidomaru reuniting with his father, who has taken the priesthood. His father was Kato Sayemon Shigeuji, a daimyo of Kyushu, who later fled his station and title and became the priest Karukaya Doshin to escape his jealous wife. His son identified him by a birthmark, but he initially refused to recognize him. Finally, the father relented, but made his son promise to keep the truth from his mother. A terrific scene from the tale showing the young boy pleading with his father, taking him by the wrist, as the monk touches his chin, a frightened expression on his face. A beautiful print from the series with fine shading in the background. This impression is from a posthumous edition published by Matsuki Heikichi between 1893 - 1895.
