The Lovers Ochiyo and Handei by Carrie Jackson

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

(Study Painting)
This painting is inspired by the heroes of an authentic tragedy which was also dramatized by Chikamatsu in 1722. Handei was a greengrocer from Osaka who married Ochiyo, a village beauty. There love was so strong their story became a village legend. Handei’s spiteful mother Omine tormented his new wife with scorn and disdain, so much so that the young couple chose to commit suicide, though Ochiyo was with child.
Perhaps they felt their love would live on, in yet another life?

    the amazingly authentic appearance is absolutely
    stunning. It looks like a museum piece from the X Dynasty
    wowee! Only like only CG can :)

  • Hey Kenny! ;D Thaaaanks so much. Yes I really worked hard to get every stroke just right. I really wanted an aged feel or actually more like an ancient feel to it. I also really worked on the lettering, it was really great to work on! It really brought back some of the calligraphy I used to do.
    Thanks buddy!!! ;D
