Ichimura Uzaemon XIII as the Candy Vendor Uzumatsu, 1861 - Handsome kabuki portrait of Ichimura Uzaemon XIII as the ameuri or candy vendor Uzumatsu. During the Edo era, ameuri walked around selling candy while playing a musical instrument. Here, he sits on a folding stool plucking a shamisen, a small drum at his feet. The stand beside him features a doll on top playing a drum, with an umbrella inserted into a piece of bamboo tied to the side. An interesting and unusual design, nicely detailed.

Image Size - 13 7/8" x 9 1/4"

Condition - Good detail. A few repairs, a couple light creases at edges.
