    日本历史上非常出名的“侧佣人*”,名为“柳泽吉保”(画面最右侧,将军梦中之人),她深受德川家第五代将军“德川纲吉”(画面中央的男性,他做梦都想着宠爱的女人)的宠溺,以至于德川将军竟把犬子当虎子——把吉保的儿子当作自己的儿子,要立他当下一任将军。见此情形,纲吉将军的正室妻子“鹰司氏信子”(画面最左侧持刀女人)为保正统,无奈把将军杀害来阻止吉保之子当上下任将军,并在杀死丈夫后自尽。
    画面左侧持刀的妻子,不晓得是因为丈夫移情别恋而不甘,还是因为身为国家掌权人的丈夫为了一个女人,竟然要做出动摇国之根本都错误决定而怒其不争。面部纠结的表情描绘十分精彩。
    This spectacular print by the great Yoshitoshi is rich and color and history. It tells a tragic story of Japan as only Yoshitoshi can. Tsunayoshi Tokugawa, the Shogun, was helplessly devoted to his lover, who is on the right in his dream. He loved her so much that he wanted their son to be the next Shogun. His wife, to this right, killed him to prevent this from happening, and to assure that her own son would ascend the throne. Here, knife in hand, she is about to commit the act. This spectacular print -- which features the light of a lantern and a screen painting of cranes (a work of art within a work of art) -- is a state-of-the-art design from the last golden era of Ukiyo-e.
