Ushiwakamaru and Princess Joruri, circa 1843

Comments - Interesting scene from the story of Ushiwakamaru, the future Yoshitsune, serenading Princess Joruji outside her mansion. His yakko or footman kneels on the ground beside a lantern, scowling angrily as he looks up at the full moon, an umbrella over his shoulder. Autumn vines grow along the garden fence and the tree trunk at left, with pine branches framing the night sky as geese descend for the evening. An expressive figure in a nicely detailed, atmospheric setting.
