In Accordance with the Pleasure of the Publisher, Based on the Old Picture of Shelter from the Rain: by   Hanabusa Itcho, circa 1848 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
In Accordance with the Pleasure of the Publisher, Based on the Old Picture of Shelter from the Rain: by Hanabusa Itcho, circa 1848

Comments - Wonderful kabuki scene of actors as travelers seeking shelter from the rain under the spreading branches of a tree. The design is loosely based on a similar genre scene by the artist Hanabusa Itcho, who died in 1724. Two religious pilgrims crouch at left, a string of prayer slips tied around their necks. Behind them a man peers out from underneath a lion dance costume. In the center a monkey trainer squats with his animal perched on his back. A musician stands behind him resting a shamisen over his shoulder as a samurai in a black robe runs up from the right. Three of the actors are Otani Hiroemon V, Matsumoto Kinsho I, Iwai Kumesaburo III. A fantastic look at the various classes of old Edo brought together for a moment during a rainstorm. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts has this image in its collection.
