Kozuka with a Shôjô


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Shôjô are monkey-like creatures with human faces who usually live near water. They are fond of drinking sake, which probably accounts for their red faces. This shôjô is dancing with a sake cup and a ladle. On the right are a sake jar and a fan.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
