Five Brave Men of Grand Edo - Handsome kabuki portrait from a rarely seen Toyokuni III series depicting famous otokodate or street knights. Each figure wears a boldly patterned black kimono, and is armed with a sword and a shakuhachi flute, which could be used as a weapon if needed. The full-length characters are set against a yellow background softly shaded with rust at the top. Nicely detailed with burnishing on the kimono. A great series.
Artist - Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)
