Seki Sanjuro as Teraoka Heiemon, 1837 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Seki Sanjuro as Teraoka Heiemon, 1837

Comments - Handsome portrait of Seki Sanjuro as Teraoka Heiemon in a scene from Act 8 of the "Kanadehon Chushingura," the drama based on the 47 ronin. After the leader of the ronin, Yuranosuke, discovered Heiemon's sister, Okaru, spying on him at the Ichiriki Teahouse, he decided to kill her to keep the vendetta a secret. Heiemon offered to kill the beauty himself to maintain his family's honor, which convinced Yuranosuke of his loyalty to the vendetta, so he spared Okaru's life. Here, the agitated samurai leans forward aggressively, scowling angrily as he witnesses the confrontation between Okaru and Yuranosuke. A nice expressive figure in a handsomely detailed setting.

Artist - Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)
Image Size - 14 5/8" x 10"
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Stitching holes at side, repaired. Slight toning and soiling, a few creases. Please see photos for details.
