Comments - Interesting kabuki double portrait featuring Ichikawa Ichizo III as Kaja Yoshitaka and Onoe Kikujiro II as the courtesan Sonohara. Yoshitaka looks over his shoulder with a grim frown, holding the end of a long pipe. His shorter hair sticks up atop his head, with the longer locks pulled into a low ponytail over his back. The beauty looks up at him out of the corners of her eyes with a sly smile, a roll of tissues in hand. Beautifully detailed with a burnished pattern on the black areas of the kimono and embossing on the white kimono collar. Nice large expressive figures set against a background shaded from blue violet to green.
