Taking an Oath in the Peach Orchard by Chikanobu (1838 - 1912)

Original Chikanobu (1838 - 1912) Japanese Woodblock Print
Taking an Oath in the Peach Orchard

Comments - Terrific kabuki scene from the historical tale "Romance of the Three Kingdoms," a story about the three warring kingdoms in China during the third century. This triptych illustrates the three leaders Kwanu, Gentoku, and Chohi meeting in the peach orchard to take an oath of brotherhood, swearing to serve each other and the state rather than continue fighting amongst themselves. The bearded warrior in the center holds a fan as he looks solemnly at the warrior on the right, who grips a fantastic glaive with a blade issuing from a dragon's mouth. A table in the center is laden with refreshments, and a blossoming cherry tree fills the background. The actors include Ichikawa Danjuro in the center panel and Nakamura Shikan at right. A fantastic image with lively color and striking, exotic costumes. A great image from this historic tale.
