The character Matsuōmaru at Matsuno'o, between Tsuchiyama and Minakuchi

Kunisada designed several ‘Tōkaidō’ series during his long career, including an erotic version. This print comes from a different series from the other four prints on display here, but it also shows actors in front of landscapes related to the stations of the Tōkaidō. Each of the Kabuki roles depicted is connected in some way to the landscape, perhaps through the location of the play or through an allusion to a local legend within the play.
