Tokyo Restaurants with Some Fancy Dishes - Handsome print from Yoshitoshi's 1871 series depicting beauties, the "fancy dishes" of the clever series title, at various restaurants in Tokyo. Each image features entertainers or waitresses in carefully detailed architectural or garden settings, demonstrating Yoshitoshi's interest in Western-style perspective. Yoshitoshi's students assisted him with the designs, with each pupil receiving a name cartouche next to his. These charming illustrations offer a wonderful look inside the restaurants around Tokyo and the activities taking place throughout the day and night. A rarely seen series from relatively early in Yoshitoshi's career, and a nice choice to collect or display.
