Midono: Nakamura Utaemon IV as a Beauty, 1852 - Expressive kabuki portrait of Nakamura Utaemon IV as an agitated beauty. She stares to the side with eyes wide, grimacing in alarm, her hand thrown open before her as she leans forward. Her long hair is pulled back onto a thick pony trail which trails over her shoulders and back, a few loose wisps at her face giving her a disheveled appearance. She wears a colorful patchwork kimono made of many different fabric patterns, tied with a black obi. The view above shows the station of Midono nestled at the foot of a large mountain. Nicely detailed with fine line work in the hair and burnishing on the obi.
