Description
Kuniyoshi Utagawa was a popular print master. Trained first in the family craft of dyer, then was probably a pupil of later of Toyokuni. He founded his own style, one so popular that it is said the young men of his time often asked him to tattoo his designs on their bodies. Kuniyohi had a taste for the bizarre, the fantastic and the ghoulish.
This print is from the mimic of 100 poems edited in the 12 Century, This image shows the unfortunate wife complaining that her husband did not come home last night. The print dates from 1845 - 1847 and was published by Iba-Ya Sensaburo and forms part of my personal collection.
