Series; The Twenty-four Chinese Paragons of Filial Piety, 1848
The Twenty-four Chinese Paragons of Filial Piety - Terrific design from a rarely seen Kuniyoshi series depicting the famous "Twenty-four Paragons of Filial Piety," a Chinese book featuring examples of the extraordinary devotion of children to their parents and relatives. These unusual designs have a rather Western appearance, some featuring patches of color or hatching to give a more three-dimensional appearance. These wonderfully detailed subjects are a nice complement to Kuniyoshi's more well-known warrior designs.
