Tokijiro Urazato Rescuing, 1847 - 1852 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Tokijiro Urazato Rescuing, 1847 - 1852

Comments - Classic kabuki scene of the young man Tokijiro on his way to rescue his lover, the Yoshiwara courtesan Urazato. Forbidden to see her sweetheart, her employer and his wife tied her up in the snowy courtyard and beat her. The poor beauty kneels in the snow at right, bound with rope around her torso, as the couple attack her with a broom and a wooden stick. Tokijiro stealthily climbs over the courtyard fence at left, his sword dangling from a cord caught between his teeth, while the couple's young daughter, Midori, weeps facedown in the snow nearby. A great dramatic illustration from this famous tale, with terrific detail in the winter setting and household furnishings.

Image Size - 9 5/8" x 14 3/8" + right margin as shown
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Slight soiling, a few creases, paper remnants at side. Please see photos for details.
