Description:

Woodblock from the series Nogaku hyakuban (One Hundred No Dramas)

The kingdom of Harana has been suffering from drought since Ikkaku Sennin fought and captured the Dragon Kings. A minister from the kingdom, along with Madam Senda, go to meet Ikkaku, and to attempt to convince him to free the Dragon Kings. They pretend to be travellers who have gotten lost, and manage to invite themselves to have wine with the sennin. Mesmerized by the beauty of Madam Senda, Ikkaku gets drunk, giving the Dragon Kings a chance to escape. They do so, after performing a martial dance over their incapacitated captor.

Biography:

Tsukioka Kogyo (1869-1927)

Although Kogyo was born the year after
the beginning of the Meiji restoration, which brought Japan into the
modern Western world, he was to become famous for his depiction of
scenes from the traditional Japanese theatre Noh. A talented and
prolific artist he was to create over 550 prints of Noh plays.

At the age of fifteen he was apprenticed
to the great woodblock artist Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839-1892), who had
married his mother. Yoshitoshi, had a “lifelong fascination with Noh”
and influenced his apprentice, to appreciate all aspects of Noh
perfomances.  After Yoshitoshi’s death, he went on to study with the
painter and woodblock artist Ogata Gekko (1859-1920), who had a more
modern style which Kogyo was to adapt for his woodblocks.
