Description:

In the epic novel by ‘Nanso Satomi Hakkenden’ by Takizawa Bakin (1767-1848), eight samurai half-brothers whose names contain the character for ‘dog’ (ken), are called upon to defend the Satomi family domain. These great samurai were the offspring of Fusehime, the daughter of Lord Anzai of the Satomi Clan, and a dog. Here the young warrior Inuzaka Shino is on the verandah of Taigyu Tower, in the Satomi family domain, after a battle. The moon is shining on a view of Ishihama Bay below. Inset: Princess Fusehime Satomi’s daughter with her husband and the dog Yatsufusa. From the series Setsugekka. ‘Snow, Moon, Flowers&quot.’ Chikanobu was a student of Toyohara Kunichika. His original name was Hashimoto but took both the last name and the second part chika of his master’s first name. He signed his prints usually with Yoshu Chikanobu.

Toyohara Toyohara (1835 - 1900)

Toyohara Kunichika (1835–1900) Kunichika was a leading Japanese woodblock print artist and highly influential. Talented as a child, at about thirteen he became a student of Tokyo’s then leading printmaker Utagawa Kunisada. He produced numerous wood blocks of popular and famous Kabuki plays and actors of which he was very knowledgeable. He is best known for his prints of kabuki actors and scenes from popular plays of the time. Kunichika also made many bijinga (beautiful women) woodblocks.
