Scene from Tsuyu no Hinuma Asagao Nikki, 1863 by Kunichika (1835 - 1900)

Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Scene from Tsuyu no Hinuma Asagao Nikki, 1863

Comments - Great scene from the kabuki play "Tsuyu no Hinuma Asagao Nikki" featuring Sawamura Tanosuke III as the beauty as Asagao (Miyuki) and Bando Hikosaburo V as Komazawa Jirozaemon. After she is parted from her sweetheart Jirozaemon, the beauty Miyuki becomes blind from weeping. She changes her name to Asagao and earns a living as a musician. When she learns that she has just missed Jirozaemon at an inn where she was playing, she decides to drown herself in the Oi Rivera Luckily, a medicine miraculously restores her sight and she sees Jirozaemon crossing the river, and the pair a finally reunited. At left, Asagao lifts her hat as she looks up to find her lover on a platform carried by porters through the waist deep water. She stands in the water herself near some wooden pilings, wearing a straw raincoat and holding a bamboo walking stick. Rain slants down through the night sky. A bold design with a striking composition and an interesting setting.
