Writing by Lantern Light

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a man writing in a book at right, looking over his shoulder with an evil grimace, a brush in hand. The fellow at right holds a lantern up above the book, while the man at left has a writing set, a worried expression on his face. The other men exchange scowls and frowns. The actors include Onoe Kikugoro, Onoe Umegoro, Nakamura Kanjaku, Otani Monzo III, and Ichikawa Sadanji. Nice expressive figures, detailed with soft shading on the background.
