Beauty and Seven Street Knights, 1889 by Kunichika (1835 - 1900)

Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty and Seven Street Knights, 1889

Comments - Interesting kabuki triptych depicting seven otokodate or street knights beneath a blossoming cherry tree. A bird-shaped inset at top center depicts a beauty who appears in the guise of a street knight as well, with a sword at her side and a shakuhachi flute at her back. Each of the men wears a kimono that is violet at the top with olive green and white checks below, tied with a blue obi. They exchange unhappy frowns and grimaces with one another, while the fellow in the center scowls angrily up at the woman. The figures are set off by a deep red sky. A handsome design with expressive figures.

Image Size - 14 1/8" x 28 1/2" + margins as shown
