Ashikage Yorikane and the Courtesan Takao, 1847 - 1852 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Ashikage Yorikane and the Courtesan Takao, 1847 - 1852

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of Ashikaga Yorikane and his lover, the elegant courtesan Takao, aboard a pleasure boat. The nobleman stares ahead with a stunned expression after Takao tells him that she is in love with someone else. His outer robe and kimono are both patterned with a bamboo motif, and he wears a gray cloth atop his head. The beauty seems alarmed by his reaction, watching him with a worried look, her eyes wide and mouth slightly agape. She clutches the collar of her outer robe, which features a design of leaves and flowing streams. Paper lanterns painted with large kanji characters hang overhead, and white-capped waves crash against the hull of the boat. A great image from this famous tale, the subject of several plays.

Image Size - 14 1/8" x 19 5/8" + margins as shown
