Tematsu no ike (Tematsu Pond)

Takahashi Hiroaki

In the lower left corner of this tall and narrow print two silohettes appear near a small dock. The surface of a pond stretches out behind them, filling much of the pictorial space. The dark form of a house with a traingular, mountain shapped roof rests in the upper register of the print. The lit windows from the house reflect in the calm yet slightly wavy pond.

Complete Illustrations of Yoshiwara Parodies of Kabuki: Courtesans of the Matsubaya (Seirô kabuki yatsushiga tsukushi: Matsubaya no uchi)

Kitagawa Utamaro

This triptych shows courtesans in a garden of Yoshiwara under flowering trees. The inscribed names allow us to identify the women as courtesans of the Matsubaya House, centered on the grand courtesan Yoso’oi (in the central triptych, with the dragon-design obi). Flanking her on either side are two shinzô apprentices, and at the right, two kamuro or child attendants.

The courtesans at left interact with a puppet of the actor Ichikawa Danjûrô VI in his role as Sukeroku. The bearded older man in the center is the villain Hige no Ikyû, Sukeroku’s rival for the affections of the courtesan Agemaki.
