Tsuji banzuke for the kabuki drama “Komamukai tanomi no tsumikomi” that was staged at the Morita Theater (Edo) from the 7th day of the 7th lunar month of Ansei 5 (1858). The day’s program also included: the Kiyomoto-style Jôruri play titled “Shinjû nise kakete tsuyu no tamadana”; and the dance drama “Yosete gogyô shosa no futsutsuka”, which was performed with Tokiwazu, Tomimoto and Naga-uta musical accompaniment. The banzuke was published by Ogawa Hansuke.




By 1911, purchased by William Sturgis Bigelow (b. 1850 - d. 1926), Boston [see note 1]; 1911, gift of Bigelow to the MFA. (Accession Date: August 3, 1911)

[1] Much of Bigelow's collection of Asian art was formed during his residence in Japan between 1882 and 1889, although he also made acquisitions in Europe and the United States. Bigelow deposited many of these objects at the MFA in 1890 before donating them to the Museum's collection at later dates.
