Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Iwai Kumsaburo as Yamana-ya Urazato and Nakamura Fukusuke as Kasuga-ya Tokijiro, 1857

Comments - Handsome scene from the play commonly known as "Urazato Tokijiro." The beautiful courtesan Urazato has been forced to meet her sweetheart, the samurai Tokijiro, secretly after her employer forbid the pair to see each other. Here, they enjoy a quiet moment together, the beauty smiling and tilting her head coyly as she tugs on the end of Tokijiro's robe. He grins as he looks up, clutching a dotted towel in his hand as he pushes up his sleeve, a few loose wisps of hair framing his face. Quilts are piled atop a chest behind them, with shelves holding lacquer boxes, the sliding panels below decorated with blossoming irises. The actors are Iwai Kumsaburo as Yamana-ya Urazato and Nakamura Fukusuke as Kasuga-ya Tokijiro. An attractive design with expressive faces and fine detail in the interior setting.
