Beauty, Manservant, and Samurai, 1851 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty, Manservant, and Samurai, 1851

Comments - Handsome kabuki scene of a beauty eagerly greeting the famous samurai and horseman Oguri Hangan in the garden outside his home, much to the distress of the manservant kneeling between them, who holds a drawstring bag in one hand. She leans forward with a happy grin, wearing a light purple outer robe with blue iris medallions over a red cherry blossom print kimono, her long hair in a ponytail. Hangan looks at her rather suspiciously as he dries the side of his face with the sleeve of his kimono. A flowering cherry tree frames the night sky above a stone water basin with a dipper resting across it. From left, the actors are Iwai Kumesaburo III, Ichikawa Koganji IV, and Bando Takesaburo I. An attractive design with a nicely detailed setting.

Artist - Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)
Image Size - 14 1/4" x 19 3/4"
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Two separate panels. Small losses at edges, a few wormholes, repaired. Slight toning and soling, a few creases, slight rubbing at edges. Please see photos for details.
