Tokaido gojusan tsui

Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description At Kakegawa, the twenty-seventh stop along the highway between Edo (old Tokyo) and Kyoto, a swordsmith identified as Shimosaka is shown with a letter. In the 1830s and 1840s, landscape prints depicting the fifty-three resting places were immensely popular. In this series, Kuniyoshi used the theme as a scaffolding for the depiction of figures, each of whom had a connection (sometimes extremely farfetched) with the place of the title.
Provenance C. Robert Snell, Oriental Arts & Antiques, Timonium, Maryland; purchased by Justine Lewis Keidel, Owings Mills, Maryland, after 1971; given to Walters Art Museum, 1991.
