Scene from Ise Ondo Koi no Netaba, 1852 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Scene from Ise Ondo Koi no Netaba, 1852

From an untitled series of horizontal oban kabuki prints

Horizontal Oban Kabuki Prints by Toyokuni III - Handsome design from an untitled series of horizontal kabuki prints by Toyokuni III dating from 1847 - 1852. The horizontal oban format is an interesting departure from the more commonly seen vertical oban actor prints, allowing Toyokuni III to create detailed settings for the characters. These images provide a nice context for the interaction between the figures. Some prints feature deluxe publishing treatments such as burnishing or embossing. An interesting complement to Toyokuni III's more well-known vertical kabuki designs.

Scene from Ise Ondo Koi no Netaba, 1852 - Handsome kabuki scene from the play "Ise Ondo Koi no Netaba," a drama about a valuable sword possessed by a bloodthirsty spirit that causes its owner to commit murder. At left, Manno, the proprietor of the Aburya geisha house looks up with a frown, gesturing with a letter in her hand. In the center, Fukuoka Mitsugi regards her solemnly, while the geisha Okon kneels on the floor, smiling sweetly, a tobacco set and a low red table piled with food nearby. From left, the actors are Asao Okuyama III, Ichikawa Danjuro VIII, and Iwai Kumesaburo II. Nice detail in the interior setting. An interesting subject in a horizontal format unusual for kabuki subjects.
