Ashmolean Museum Oxford
A premium print featuring the artwork The Gang of Five Returning in the Morning Like Wild Geese by Toyohara Kunichika. The artwork is currently on display at the Ashmolean Museum as part of the Colour Revolution: Victorian Art, Fashion & Design exhibition.
Originally part of a pentaptych depicting five heavily-tattooed thieves, the leading characters in a play based on the exploits of a gang of real-life thieves in eighteenth-century Japan. The thieves were presented as heroic commoners who stood up to the powerful samurai on behalf of the people.
