Footnotes

  • The subject of the first may be a caricature of Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1563-98), who had various nicknames, including saru matsu (monkey pine) and saru kanja (monkey servant). From known portraits, he is characterised by a pointed nose and baggy eyes, each represented in the present example. For a discussion on the subject, see The Netsuke Society Journal, vol.15, no.4, pp.13-15.
