Bando Hikosaburo V as Sakaya Mataroku and Nakamura Nakazo III as Shikabue no Shichizo, 1865 - Handsome print from a rarely seen early Kunichika series pairing kabuki actors with poems. At top, Sakaya Mataroku grips a sword above his head with both hands as Shikabue no Shichizo thrusts a wooden sign at him from below, grimacing angrily. Insets with verses appear to the side of the portraits. From top to bottom, the actors are Bando Hikosaburo V and Nakamura Nakazo III. An interesting composition.
