Young Lovers Hinadori and Koganosuke, 1849 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Young Lovers Hinadori and Koganosuke, 1849

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.

Young Lovers Hinadori and Koganosuke, 1849 - Handsome scene from the popular kabuki play commonly known as "Imoseyama onna teikin," which tells the story of a young couple who fall in love, unaware that their families are bitter rivals with estates on either side of the Yoshino River. From left, the actors are Iwai Kumesaburo III as Hindori, Onoe Baiko IV as her mother, the widow Sadataka, Ichikawa Komazo VII as Koganosuke, and Sawamura Chojuro V as Koganosuke's father, Daihanji.
