Scene from Takari Oriemon budo jitsuroku, 1848

Comments - Interesting scene from the kabuki play "Takari Oriemon budo jitsuroku" at the Nakamura Theater of a beauty eavesdropping on a conversation between two samurai at a shrine. She stands behind a rolled up reed screen at left, tilting her head with her hand to her ear as she listens. In the center, the worried-looking Otaka Tonomo lifts the edge of his woven as he turns to Innami Kazuma holding an offering tray in his outstretched hand. The young warrior smiles happily, seemingly unaware of his companion's discomfort. The rugged trunk of a large tree dominates the scene, with a stand on the left holding a book and containers on a low red lacquer table, and the red supporting pillars of the shrine at right. From left, the actors are Onoe Kikujiro II, Nakamura Utaemon IV, and Iwai Kumesaburo III. An intriguing subject with handsomely detailed figures and an interesting setting.
