Comments - Great kabuki scene of an argument taking place on a bridge. At right, a man throws a yoke and two large wooden chests over the edge of the railing, grimacing at a beauty as he does so. She reacts with surprised grin, hiding behind her raised sleeve. She wears a purple striped kimono with a lighter purple and white pattern, tied with a red geometric print obi that reverses to a violet tie-dyed design. Her male companion watches with a scowl, his brows furrowed, while the agitated woman at left raises her hand in alarm. A great composition with the arched wooden bridge stretching across the three panels against a night sky. An interesting subject with soft bokashi shading on the sky.
