Comments - Handsome scene from the kabuki play from "Tenmangu Wakaba no Goaijju" at the Kawarazaki Theater featuring Ichikawa Danjuro VIII as as the samurai Toneri Sakuramaru and Ichikawa Shinsha I as his wife, Yae. He looks down at her with a sullen frown, one hand gripping the hilt of his sword, the tip of the weapon resting on the floor. A few loose hairs framing his face give him a rather disheveled appearance. The beauty smiles back at him happily as she kneels on the floor, patting the side of her head. She wears a gray outer robe with cherry blossoms and streams over a kimono with colorful tie-dyed bands. Nice expressive figures.
