Object Description
Meiji period color woodblock print. Kuniyoshi borrows heavily from the traditions of Western art for his treatment of a very oriental theme, the Twenty-four Paragons of Filial Piety. This image from the series depicts Choko offering himself to a bandit who is about to slay his brother. It has been suggested that the figure of the bandit and the setting were inspired by a Western print of Robinson Crusoe that Kuniyoshi had admired.
