Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Angry Servant and Couple

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a servant carrying in a large tray holding a plate of food, small cups, and a covered lacquer box. He scowls angrily as he looks down, his striped kimono tucked up at the waist and a dotted towel draped over his shoulder. The beauty looks back at him with a sad expression, a roll of tissues in one hand. Her companion at right glares back at the servant as he huddles beneath a heavy robe, his arms firmly crossed and tucked into his sleeves. A row of clouds separates the figures from a view of treetops and the masts of ships in the harbor beyond. A handsome design with fine bokashi shading.
