- Made in: Japan
Inscription CommentKiyomitsu, Torii
After the 'invention' of the pillar-print by Masanobu (case 13), the format became increasingly slender and the compositions more daringly cropped. The suggeston of movement in the auspicious sambaso dance here, for instance, is enhanced by the sense of the boy coming stamping into the picture. (Label copy, TTC, 1998)
