The Ise Dance at Furuichi, 1883 - Handsome scene of beauties performing the "Ise Ondo," a famous folk song and dance made popular in the Furuichi entertainment district at Ise during the Edo era. Dressed in identical kimono, beauties pose gracefully along a verandah around the outer walls of a teahouse. Musicians in the center accompany the dancers on shamisen and kokyo, while an appreciative audience watches at right. The obi and railings are detailed with a metallic pigment that has oxidized to a dark tone. An inset at upper left depicts a scene from the kabuki play "Ise Ondo Koi no Netaba" (The Ise Dances and Love's Dull Blade). The actors include Sawamura Gennosuke as Aburaya Okon, Ichikawa Sadanji, and Onoe Kikugoro as Fukuoka Mitsugi. An attractive design with wonderful detail in the setting. The first time we've seen this Chikanobu triptych.
