Original Meiji era Japanese Woodblock Print
Ichikawa Sadanji as an Angry Man, 1893

Comments - Handsome kabuki portrait of Ichikawa Sadanji as an angry man, frowning as he looks ahead, his hand clenched into a fist before him. His other hand grips the handle of a red wooden bucket. One sleeve of his outer kimono is pushed down to the waist, revealing a blue kimono with an intricate scrolling pattern. At left, a portrait of a courtesan appears on a simulated wood panel, with what looks like wooden lid with writing on it below. She wears a red print kimono over a pink under robe, tied with a green and yellow checked obi. A few blossoms plum branches are set against a background shaded from red to pink to pale green. Includes embossing on the beauty's white kimono collar. An interesting format with a large expressive figure.
