Kabuki C: Shibaraku (Just a Moment)

Kabuki C: Shibaraku (Just a Moment)



Gift of the Artist 1984.83

Catalogue raisonné: Kubo 176



In the famous Kabuki play Shibaraku, the hero, depicted
here, halts a villainous act by shouting shibaraku, or "just
a moment."

Although Mori spent thirty years in the textile industry
designing kimono patterns, in the late 1950s he studied with
Keisuke Serizawa (also in this exhibition) and began to use
his knowledge of stencil-cutting to create original prints. His
inventive images, based on subjects from the Kabuki theater,
Japanese festivals, and traditional folktales, were extremely
popular both in Japan and internationally.
