A caricature picture *giga Y which was popular in the 17-19c that displayed the Edo period's fondness for improvisation and subtle innuendo. Thought to be so termed after Toba Soujou Hm(1053-1140), the author of the humorous ink-drawn handscrolls sketches, the Choujuu jinbutsu giga blY (Kouzanji R, Kyoto). Toba-e were generally rough sketches involving subtle puns or comic situations. Based on various early 18c written sources it appears that this type of caricature became popular between 1716-1736. The earliest extant picture books *ehon G{ of this genre are the Keihitsu toba-sha yMH, the Toba-e sangokushi HGOj and the Toba-e ougi-no-mato HG̓I. Toba-e designed by Katsushika Hokusai k (1760-1849) and Utagawa Hiroshige ̐Ld (1797-1858) also remain today. In the late 19c, several comic magazines were published under the name "toba-e."
