Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Scene from Imoseyama onna teikin, 1859

Comments - Interesting scene from the kabuki play "Imoseyama onna teikin" of the hunter Shibaroku meeting a nobleman outside a doorway. Shibaroku kneels at right, looking up with a slight frown as the nobleman stares back at him angrily. He wears a striking kimono patterned with phoenixes, and a court cap adorned with cherry blossoms. A mirror hangs around his neck and he holds a rustic wooden walking stick. A young boy kneels beside him holding a tray with a box on it. Rugged rocks fill the background, creating an unusual setting. A handsome design.
