Swordfight in an Interior, 1892

Comments - Dramatic kabuki scene of a fight breaking out between two men in an interior. The samurai at right has jumped to his feet, gripping his sword above his head with both hands. His opponent thrusts out his blade as he recoils, knocking over a candlestick. Overturned bowls of food and water are scattered across the floor. From left, the actors are Ichikawa Gonjuro I and Ichikawa Sadanji. A bold design with large expressive figures in a nicely detailed setting, with metallic pigment that has oxidized to a dark tone on the sword blades.
