Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Couple in Front of a Household Shrine, 1863

Comments - Handsome kabuki diptych showing a couple in front of an altar decorated for a special holiday or festival. The courtesan Okon of the Aburaya kneels at left, smiling slyly and tilting her head, a fan in her outstretched hand. The samurai Fukuoka Mitsugi looks down at her warily as he scratches his head. The altar is covered with a straw mat, with offering trays piled high with sweets, and candles burning in a red lacquer holder. The table is flanked with bamboo stalks, with sacred shimenawa ropes hung above. From left, the actors are Sawamura Tanosuke and Bando Hikosaburo. An interesting subject with wonderful detail.
