Distraught Boatman and Kidnapped Beauty, 1847 - 1852 - Dramatic kabuki portrait of a distraught boatman grimacing as he looks up, his hands thrown out beside him in alarm. His long wet hair streams over his shoulders, and he is bleeding from a cut to the top of his head. He wears a tie-dyed shirt in a pattern favored by boatmen over a black undergarment, a striped sash tied around his waist. In the distance at upper left, a man rows away in a boat with a kidnapped beauty aboard, the seated woman bound with rope with a gag around her mouth. A great expressive figure with fine detail in hair and bokashi shading in the water.
