Series; The Eighteen Kabuki Plays (Kabuki Juhachiban)

Kagekiyo, 1952 - Fantastic kabuki portrait of the Taira general Kagekiyo breaking out of the cell in which he has been imprisoned by the Minamoto. He grips a wooden beam against his shoulder, grimacing fiercely, his eyes bulging and his brows furrowed. She wears a brocade robe over a suit of armor, his hair elaborately styled with wings along the side and atop his head, and longer locks falling over his shoulders. An incredibly expressive image capturing the intensity of the actor in this dramatic role. Beautifully detailed with simulated wood grain on the beam and burnishing on the hair. A real shin-hanga kabuki masterwork by Tadamasa Ueno.
