by Kunichika (1835 - 1900)
Comments - Intriguing kabuki scene of a beauty calmly twisting the wrist of an attacker with a knife, forcing the assailant to the ground before her. She stares off to the side with a tight-lipped frown as if lost in thought, a loose wisp of hair framing her face. Her purple kimono features descending geese and narcissuses, worn over a red under robe and tied with a plaid obi, a white cloth in her other hand. At inset at upper left in the form of two books features text. A vibrantly colored design with fine detail in the hair and metallic pigment that has oxidized to a dark tone on the blade of the knife.
