Comments - Handsome kabuki double portrait featuring Sawamura Tossho II as the wife Otama and Ichikawa Sadanji I as the commoner Genjiro outside the entrance to a building. At right, Genjiro scratches his head in a puzzled manner, frowning suspiciously as he eyes the beauty, who grins rather evilly. She wears a gray and blue striped kimono over a red under robe, tied with a yellow and brown plaid obi. Her hair is pulled back into a knot with a white ribbon, a comb slipping loose from the side of her head. Nice large expressive figures with a handsomely detailed setting.
