Original Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861) Japanese Woodblock Print
Tomoe-gozen Supervising Her Son Fencing
Series; Stories of Wise Women and Faithful Wives, circa 1841 - 1842

Stories of Wise Women and Faithful Wives - Handsome design from a series illustrating famous women in Japan who were known for their loyalty and wisdom. These celebrated beauties are shown in scenes from daily life, with an inset cartouche filled with text detailing their virtues. From peasants and princesses to courtesans and women warriors, these lovely portraits are beautifully detailed and colored. A terrific Kuniyoshi series that is not often seen.

Tomoe-gozen Supervising Her Son Fencing - Charming scene of the Lady Tomoe, the famous woman warrior, supervising her son, Asahina Saburo, as he practices fencing. The beauty sits on a cushion with one hand resting atop a brazier, gesturing with her hand as she watches the child closely. The young boy extends his wooden practice sword with both hands, wearing a blue kimono patterned with a mask and toys tucked into striped pants. An attractive image, nicely detailed.
