by Kunichika (1835 - 1900)
Comments - Great kabuki portrait of Nakamura Shikan in a summer kimono. He grins happily as he looks up slyly out of the corners of his eyes, wearing a dark blue robe with bold white writing on the back, the motif repeated on the red fan he holds. Autumn grasses and flowers appear in dark silhouette against the night sky behind him. A handsome design, nicely detailed with delicate cloth embossing on the white area of the kimono and a dusting of mica across the top of the image.
