The Subscription List, 1895 by Kunisada III (1848 - 1920)

Original Kunisada III (1848 - 1920) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Subscription List, 1895

Comments - Great scene from the famous kabuki play "The Subscription List" (Kanjincho) which tells the story of how Yoshitsune Minamoto and his faithful retainer Benkei, the warrior-monk, led his men across the border disguised as monks. The aristocrat Togashi, shown at right in a blue kamishimo patterned with cranes, is charged with intercepting the party. The nobleman suspects that the monk at left is Yoshitsune (and really is), so to allay suspicions, Benkei angrily berates the young man, something he would never were he really his master. Pine branches in soft gray frame the scene, suggesting the country setting. Beautifully detailed with burnishing on Togashi's black court cap and a delicate allover fabric embossing on the background. The first time we've offered this design.
