Object Description
Meiji period Japanese color woodblock print with an image of a group scene, family portrait. Triptych. At the center of this print is an imaginary portrait of Tokugawa Ieyasu (1542-1616), the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate (1568-1868). Flanked around him are the succeeding 14 shoguns. The last one, Yoshinobu (1827-1913), is dressed in Western pants and a military jacket at the left. This print was published in 1868, right after the overthrow of the Tokugawa government in the Meiji Restoration and served as a memorial to the Tokugawa family.
