Original Kunisada II (1823 - 1880) Japanese Woodblock Print
The 47 Ronin, Act 6: The Departure of Okaru and Kampei's Suicide
Series; The Treasury of Loyal Retainers (Kanadehon Chushingura), 1859

The 47 Ronin, Act 6: The Departure of Okaru and Kampei's Suicide - Great illustration from the classic kabuki play "Kanadehon Chushingura," based on the true story of the 47 ronin. The beautiful young Okaru has been sold to a brothel and is being carried away by palanquin at upper left. Inside the house, her husband Kampei struggles as he is accused of killing his father-in-law, grabbing hold of one of the visiting samurai's swords. Terrific detailing in the shabby household setting, with cracks in the plaster and a collapsing roof. A stretched fox fur hangs from the eaves and large mortar and pestle sits beside the entrance. A handsome scene with a fine burnished pattern in the samurai's black coat.
