Comments - Great kabuki portrait of Otani Tomoemon V as a commoner in front of a quilted fabric featuring a dragon emerging from clouds in the dark sky. He looks over his shoulder with an air of disgust, his brows slightly furrowed, a dotted cloth stretched between his hands. A striking design, beautifully detailed.
