Utagawa Kunisada (Toyokuni III)
Japanese Sumo Wrestlers

$1,500

About

Two wrestlers square off in the round sumo ring. The name of the wrestler to the right is Hiodoshi (緋縅),“Crimson Threat”, and to the left is Iwatoyama (岩戸山), “Mt. Iwato”, and at far left is the name of the referee: 1st line, 行司=gyouji, sumo referee; 2nd line, 木村庄太郎=Kimura Shoutarou. From the writing on a similar print comes the info that this pair of rikishi appeared on 9 occasions from 1828 to 1833, with Hiodoshi representing the East as sekiwake, and Iwatoyama similarly representing the West.  In their matches against each other, Hiodoshi won 5 times. Original Japanese color woodblock print. Terrific for a boy's room.
