Scene from Atari Kuji Mansei Soga, 1867 - Handsome scene from the kabuki play Atari Kuji Mansei Soga at the Morita Theater featuring from left, Iwai Shijaku II as the courtesan Miuraya Agemaki, Bando Hikosaburo V as her sweetheart, the otokodate or street knight Kurotegumi Sukeroku, and Otani Tomoemon V as Torii Shinzaemon. Sukeroku stares ahead with a sullen frown while Shinzaemon watches him with a worried expression, his matching coat and kimono decorated with skulls above a broken wooden fence. At left, the beauty smiles sweetly, wearing a red kimono patterned with chrysanthemums over a red under robe, tied with a blue floral obi. The figures stand in front of a building with a wooden grill over the window at left and curtains hanging in the doorway at right. Nice large expressive figures in an interesting setting.
