Scene from Sukeroku Yukari no Edo-zakura, 1862

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene from the play Scene from Sukeroku Yukari no Edo-zakura" at the Ichimura Theater, a tale about the otokodate or street knight Sukeroku, who is actually one of the famous Soga Brothers in disguise. He kneels at left, looking up with an angry expression at his sweetheart, the courtesan Agemaki of the Miuraya. He wears a black kimono and has an invalid's sash tied around his forehead, a symbol of his lovesickness for Agemaki. The beauty smiles as she coyly tilts her head, wearing a kimono patterned with oversize peonies over a red under robe, tied with a striking obi featuring a carp leaping up a stream. Blossoming cherry branches frame the sky above. From left, the actor are Kawarazaki Gonjuro I and Iwai Kumesaburo III. An attractive design.
