DETAILS
  • The Courtesan Miyagino and Her Younger Sister Shinobu by Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (Japan, 1839-1892). The official title is Keisei Miyagino imoto Shinobu from the series Twenty-four Paragons of Filial Piety in Imperial Japan (Kôkoku nijûshi kô). Artist chop mark in the bottom left. Dates to the Meiji period circa 1881-1887.

    Miyagino and Shinobu, whose farmer father was murdered by the samurai Shiga, swore to avenge his death. In secret they trained themselves in the martial arts. They then went to the local daimyo and challenged Shiga to a duel, killing him in the fight that followed. The image depicts the meeting of Miyagino and Shinobu in the brothel where Miyagino works. After the death of their father, Shinobu went in search of her sister in Edo. Arriving at the brothel, her country dialect is incomprehensible to the courtesans there, except for Miyagino. After questioning Shinobu, Miyagino discovers they are sisters, hears of their father's death, and the two plot revenge.
