Parodies of Scenes from Kabuki Plays - Terrific comic scene from a rare Yoshitoshi series depicting parodies of scenes from popular kabuki plays. Each chuban sized print features an amusing interpretation of an act from a kabuki drama that would have been easily recognizable by the audience. This series is not well documented, and we've only run across a few of these designs before. Roger Keyes states that it was published circa early 1886, and later republished in 1897 (Keyes 495). An interesting choice for a Yoshitoshi collector.
