Comments - Handsome kabuki portrait of Kawarazaki Gonjuro as the samurai Yazama Shigetaro sitting inside a house on a dark night. He looks over his shoulder with a frown as he holds his sword upright between his hands. A kettle hangs over a blazing fire in a floor hearth behind him, and the walls of the home are shabby with cracked and missing plaster. A paper lantern hangs at upper right and autumn grasses can be seen outside. An interesting design with a nicely detailed interior setting.
