Original Kunisada III (1848 - 1920) Japanese Woodblock Print
Meeting at a Tokugawa Encampment
Comments - Handsome kabuki scene of a meeting taking place at a Tokugawa encampment, with a white-haired elder sitting in the center. A young messenger bows at left, looking up at him earnestly. Two other samurai watch from the right, one leaning forward with an anxious expression as he fans himself. A basket of peaches sits on the ground before the elder warrior, who kneels on a tiger skin. The white tent walls are emblazoned with the hollyhock mon or crest of the Tokugawa Shogunate. An interesting triptych with lively color and fine faint embossed detail on the elder's white hair.
