Kedamono Shiyo Shoku-zukushi ["The Various Jobs of Beasts"]

[Utagawa], Koyoshimori [illustrated by].

[Edo (Tōkyō)]: Jōkin [Jōshūya Kinzō], Keiō 3 [1867].


A satirical giga print on the daily jobs of animals by Koyoshimori, a little-known disciple of Utagawa Yoshimori. In Koyoshimori's anthropomorphic world, the bull is making wheels, the fox is selling inarizushi, the bear is peddling kuma no kōyaku ("bear ointment"), the cat is playing the shamisen (traditionally made from cat skins), and so on and so forth. A nice, colourful impression of a scarce nishiki-e.

 

One ōban leaf, complete, margins slightly trimmed, three small wormholes to extremities. 35.8 x 24.3 cm.
