Attacking a Lady's Maid beneath a Cherry Tree, 1851 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Attacking a Lady's Maid beneath a Cherry Tree, 1851

Comments - Great kabuki scene of a samurai attacking the lady's maid Okaru beneath a blossoming cherry tree at night. He leans forward as he holds his sword out before him with both hands, scowling angrily. His furry blue and white zigzag patterned outer robe has been pushed down to the waist, revealing a blue tie-dyed kimono. The beauty recoils from her attacker, flinging one hand out defensively, but she still smiles as if not believing he might attempt to hurt her. A few petals drift down through the sky, a symbol of the fleeting quality of life. Nice expressive figures with soft shading in the night sky.

Artist - Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)
Image Size - 14 1/4" x 20" + margins as shown
