The 47 Ronin, Act 2: Wakasanosuke’s Mansion by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
The 47 Ronin, Act 2: Wakasanosuke’s Mansion

Comments - Handsome illustration of Act 2 from the classic play "Kanadehon Chushingura," which tells the story of the 47 ronin. In this scene, Rikiya, the young son of Yuranosuke, delivers a message to Lord Wakasanosuke at his palace. Wakasanosuke's wife, Tonase, sends her eligible daughter Konami to greet the young samurai, as the pair has fallen in love and she wants to encourage them. Konami shyly turns her head away as she offers the visitor a tobacco set, while Rikiya looks down with a dismayed expression at the delay. Tonase eavesdrops from behind the screen at left, holding her sleeve to her mouth to suppress a giggle. Beautiful color and detail in the fine mansion and grounds.

Image Size - 14 7/8" x 20 1/4"
