Comments - Great kabuki portrait of Ichimura Uzaemon XII as Takechi Mitsuhide, the treacherous samurai who betrayed his master, Lord Oda Harunaga (the real-life Akechi Mitsuhide and Oda Nobunaga). He stands on the verandah of a mansion clutching a blind pierced with many arrows, a naginata in his other hand, the tattered remnants of the blind hanging from the eaves above. He looks over his shoulder with a strange expression. A handsome design, nicely composed and detailed.
