(1839-1892)
The story of Tamiya Bôtarô, from the series “New Selection of Eastern Brocade Pictures”.
Date: 1886
The boy Bôtarô watches his nurse Otsuji haul a bucket of water from the well. From the kabuki play “A Child’s Revenge”. Most interesting is the lush backdrop of lotus flowers and pumpkin blossoms. It is also interesting how attractive Otsuji seems and how sensual her pose is, although this story revolves around how steadfast and loyal she was to her charge.
