Yoshitsune Senbon Zakura: Michiyuki, 1888 by Kunichika (1835 - 1900)

Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Yoshitsune Senbon Zakura: Michiyuki, 1888

Comments - Handsome depiction of the michiyuki or travel dance from the kabuki play "Yoshitsune Senbon Zakura" featuring Lady Shizuka, the lover of Minamoto no Yoshitsune. After Yoshitsune fled to avoid capture by his brother, the beauty determined to rejoin him. Traveling with Yoshitsune's faithful retainer, Tadanobu, she set out after him. Pausing for a break under a blossoming cherry tree, she consoled herself by performing a dance, with a suit of armor set up to take Yoshitsune's place. She strikes a pose with her fan extended and a hand drum in her other hand, while Tadanobu kneels at her feet. The actors are Nakamura Fukusuke as Shizuka and Ichikawa Danjuro as Tadanobu. An attractive design, detailed with faint embossing on the white kimono collar.
