Musashi, Moon over Tatsumi, Lord Tsunayoshi and Lady Osame, No. 16 - Lovely illustration of Lady Osame and Lord Tokugawa Tsunayoshi enjoying a moonlit boat ride in the Fukiage garden pond of Edo Castle. Tsunayoshi became shogun unexpectedly upon the death of his brother, Ietsuna. Lady Osame is dressed as a shirabyoshi dancer with a tall court cap, and she carries a small hand drum. The inset above shows the evil Yanagisawa Yoshiyasu, an advisor who tried to corrupt the honest Tsunayoshi. A beautiful scene with fine embossing on the white kimono fabric, and burnishing on the black areas of the boat.
