Omiya: Bando Mitsugoro III as Hatakeyama Shigetada, 1852 - Great portrait of Bando Mitsugoro III as the Genji commander Hatakeyama Shigetada in the popular kabuki play "Dan-no-ura kabuto gunki." He stares over his shoulder with an angry frown, his brows furrowed. He wears an elegantly patterned gray kamishimo over a blue kimono with a brown print inset at the waist, the chest and sleeves featuring the paulownia crest of the Minamoto Clan. His thinning hair is tied back into a smooth topknot tied with an embossed white cord. The landscape above shows a traveler stopping for a break at a roadside tea stand at Omiya, a woman tending a fire beneath a large kettle hung from a tree. The Chichibu Mountains can be seen in the distance. A great expressive figure, detailed with faint embossing on the white kimono collar.
