Theatrical Trio - The caption for this print reads—Kiyomasu: Theatrical trio (print in hoso-ye form).  This art form of theatrical prints had its origin in the large posters displayed outside the theaters as advertisements of the play. Torii Kiyomasi was a Japanese painter and printmaker of the school known as Torii. The style of painting was ukiyo-e. Kiyomasi is believed to have been active in early 1700s. Ukiyo-e is Japanese for "picture[ or pictures] of the floating world."     © Newagen Archive / The Image Works

The Winds -  The figures pictured here, according to Greek mythology, are the Winds. They are, from left to right, top to bottom: Lips, Zephryus, Eurus, and Apeliotes. Lips, or Livos, was the god of the southwest wind. Usually he was shown holding a ship's sternpost because when the wind blew form the southwest into Athens' port harbor of Piraeus, ships could not sail. Zephyrus was the god of the west wind. Zephyrus was the gentlest of the winds and considered a harbinger of springtime. He was pictured with flowers that indicated a mild light breeze. Eurus, or Euros, was the god of the east wind. The folds of his clothes suggested heavy clouds. Apeliotes was the southeast wind, which was associated with good rain. Thus in art he was shown carrying fruit and draped in a cloth that concealed flowers or grain. Greek myth listed eight Winds. The other four are: Boreas (cold north wind), Kaikias (northeast wind), Notos (south wind), and Skiron (northwest wind).     © Newagen Archive / The Image Works
