Scene from Toshitoku Soga Matsu no shimadai, 1857

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene from the play "Toshitoku Soga Matsu no shimadai" at the Nakamura Theater of Iwai Kumesaburo III as Ishii Tsuneemon and Iwai Kumesaburo III as the courtesan Takao. The beauty grins happily as she looks down at her companion, pulling up the edge of her robe. Her black kimono is decorated with peonies and chrysanthemums and tied with a obi decorated with maple leaves. Her hair is arranged in two large loops adorned with combs and hairpins that also have maple leaves. Tsuneemon stares back at her soberly, holding the end of a fan. Shoji panels line the back of the room behind them. A handsome design, detailed with fine line work in the hair.
