Footnotes

  • 木彫根付 虎 銘「豊昌」 19世紀前期

    Although this is a common subject carved by other artists, this is an unusually large and boldly carved rendition by Toyomasa. For a somewhat similar example, signed Hidari Toyomasa (Toyoyo, the son of Naito Toyomasa I), see Alain Ducros, Netsuke et Sagemono, 1987, p.88, no.159.
