Copy of a Tosa School Picture Scroll, 1860 - Amusing scene of people taking part in an ink fight in a design based on a scroll painting from the Muromachi period Tosa School. At the bottom, two men on their knees dab ink on each other's faces. Just above them a fellow in a short blue coat gleefully slaps ink all over a nobleman's head, while an old woman attacks a seated monk with a long-handled brush. A great comic design with wonderfully expressive figures.
