Original Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) Japanese Woodblock Print
View of a Banquet for the Toyotomi Clan by Lord Tokugawa, 1877
Comments - Interesting scene of a banquet for members of the Toyotomi clan held by Lord Tokugawa, who appears behind the fine reed blind at far left. Dressed in formal court attire, the men are seated around the room, with a tray of sweets on the floor in the center. Behind them, an elegant screen is decorated with cranes and flowering bush clover along a river. Beautifully printed and nicely detailed with burnishing on the black court caps. We've only seen this rare Yoshitoshi triptych twice before.
