Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Scene from Edo-zakura Kiyomizu Seigen, 1858

Comments - Handsome kabuki portrait of Ichikawa Kodanji IV as the priest Kiyomizu Seigen in the play "Edo-zakura Kiyomizu Seigen" at the Ichimura Theater. He looks over his shoulder with a worried frown, his brows furrowed, a wooden pail in one hand and a string of prayer beads in the other. He wears a brown priest's mantle over purple robes with a blue scarf wrapped about his neck. A circular inset at upper left features Ichikawa Yonejuro II as the yakko or footman Yodohei, scratching his head in a puzzled manner. Blossoming cherry branches frame the stone embankment behind the figure. An interesting design.

Artist - Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Image Size - 14 3/8" x 9 7/8" + top margin as shown
