Sukenobu: Two women and a young boy (Sold)
Artist: Nishikawa Sukenobu
Title: Two women and a young boy
Date: ca. 1730s-40s
Two women caring for a young boy, who is excitedly trying to escape from his elder caretaker’s grasp. His toys are scattered at left, and a young woman mixes food together to feed a bird in a cage, evidently the cause of the boy’s excitement. The elder woman’s face is creased with concern. The style is almost identical to works in Sukenobu’s “Fude no Umi” album from 1749. With the number “two” within a circle, lower right.
