Comments - Handsome kabuki portrait of Nakamura Shikan IV as the evil samurai Fuwa Banzaemon in the play "Chiyo no Haru Tosa-e no Saya-ate." He stands in a courtyard garden, grimacing angrily as he looks over his shoulder. He has a shakuhachi flute in one hand as he pushes up the sleeve of his boldly patterned kimono with the other. A stone lantern can be seen at left, with blossoming cherry branches framing the night sky above. A nice expressive figure.
