Samurai Drawing His Sword and Alarmed Elder, 1857 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Samurai Drawing His Sword and Alarmed Elder, 1857

Comments - Dramatic kabuki scene of a samurai drawing his sword as he stands over a kneeling man who has struck a guard on the head with his fan, sending the man tumbling headfirst to the floor. He looks up at his attacker with a worried frown, placing a hand on his shoulder to try to calm him. In the center, an elderly man watches with alarm, throwing his hand out at his side, while the nobleman at right frowns at the commotion. He stands on a cushion, wearing an elegant coat with a red pleated collar and trim, holding his sword between his hands. A bird cage sits atop a red lacquer stand to the left, and a small cherry tree blooms in a blue and white porcelain pot at right. Oversize peony blossoms and clouds decorate the back of the room, providing an attractive setting. Nice expressive figures.
