Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Samurai with a Letter, 1856
Comments - Handsome kabuki scene of a samurai and a young man in an interior, sitting on a bed. At right, the samurai hands a completed letter over to the youth for review, a writing set with brushes and an ink stone on the floor before him, his two swords nearby. The boy smiles as he looks up from examining the blade of a sword, another letter laid out in front of her. At upper left, a floral arrangement hangs on the wall, with a chest below. An interesting subject with a nicely detailed setting.
