Bamba: Bando Mitsugoro III as a Shirabyoshi Dancer, 1852 - Handsome kabuki portrait of Bando Mitsugoro as a shirabyoshi dancer, looking over her shoulder with an alarmed expression. She wears a gray vest with a delicate scroll and blossom pattern over a red print kimono, a fan in her hand. A tall yellow court cap is tied under her chin with a tasseled cord, her hair adorned with clusters of blue flowers and pink ribbons. The view of Bamba behind her features pine-topped hills overlook a lake in the distance. A fantastic portrait with fine embossing in the white kimono collar and handsome wood grain impression in the sky.
