Tokijo, the Servant of the Lord of Mito (Tokugawa Nariaki), Looking over Her Shoulder - Lovely portrait of Tokijo, the servant of Tokugawa Nariaki, the Lord of Mito, looking back over her shoulder. She rests both hands atop a slender red pipe, wearing a brown striped outer robe over a striped kimono trimmed with a black collar, tied with a black obi. Her hair is pulled back into a large smooth bun, with a small lock looped back directly above her forehead, a few loose hairs framing her face. An attractive design with delicate line work in the eyelashes and hairstyle, and a softly shaded background. Tokugawa Nariaki was active in the Meiji restoration. A terrific image from a rare Yoshitoshi series featuring strong and heroic women associated with the Meiji restoration and the Satsuma Rebellion.
