The Dutiful Daughter by Toyohara Kunichika
Depiction of: A daughter helping her father with work in a village.

Period: Meiji - 1885

Size: 13.75 x 9 inches

Condition: Very Good. This series of prints were mounted as an album at one time, and it explains the backing. This is the reason why the colors are still vivid and bright. Although there are creases and fold lines, there is no loss of color, so the lines are not that noticeable. (Matted print)

Description: This series was published by Matsuki Heikichi starting from 1885 to 1890, and included 52 prints by 7 artists. Each print showed a famous person from Japanese history. The Lofty Ambition of the title is a Confucian concept meaning righteous determination that would inspire others.

Henry D. Smith II, Kiyochika - Artist of Meiji Japan, pp74-75.
Riccar Art Museum, 1973 for a complete catalogue of the prints in this series.
