The Servant Kanpei, 1856 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Servant Kanpei, 1856

Comments - Interesting kabuki portrait of the yakko or servant Kanpei from the play commonly known as "Kuzunoha," a tale about a magic fox who takes the form of the beauty Kuzunoha to marry the samurai who saved her from a hunter. Here, Kanpei looks forward with a dumbfounded expression, one hand flung out at his side. His kimono is tucked up, revealing a loincloth trimmed with fringe, and he carries his master's two swords over his shoulder. Behind him, a stone fence encloses a garden with a blossoming cherry tree and a stone lantern. An expressive figure.

Artist - Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)
Image Size - 14" x 9 1/2"
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Backed with paper. Slight soiling, a few creases, marks and stains. Please see photos for details.
