This is a fun woodblock showing a naked man being tossed out of either a gambling house or a geisha house. It seems to be a universal practice, if you can't pay up, you get thrown out without clothes. Look at that oba-san's expression! By Toyokuni. Image area 9 3/4 by 13 1/2 inches. Double matted in grey and black. Good condition with about 5 small worm holes. Seal of artist on the drawer, lower right. There are 2 seals at the lower left. One is the publisher. The other is unusual, a seal of the woodblock carver, seldomly seen.

This woodblock has unusual subject matter and is very decorative.
