In this charming original woodblock print made in 1883, the artist Toyohara Kunichika (豊原国周) decidedly diverges from his habitual representation of female beauty embodied by unapproachable noblewomen and courtesans, and presents the lovely scene of a breastfeeding, within a domestic environment between tableware and toys, during which a mother and an infant exchange tenderness.

The work, produced by the publisher Komiyama Shohei (小宮山昇平) and by the carver Wada Yujiro (和田勇次郎), is taken from the series "Newly Woven Brocades: Beauties of Musashi" (錦織武蔵の別品), where "Musashi" is a reference to the plain that extends across the modern Tokyo.

The print on Japanese washi paper (和紙) is in very good condition, thanks also to an effective relining carried out on the back.
