Mist: Ichikawa Sadanji as Hoshikage Tsuchiemon, 1876 - Great kabuki portrait of Ichikawa Sadanji as Hoshikage Tsuchiemon, grimacing angrily as he holds his sword upright over his shoulder, the blade streaked with blood. He wears a dark purple kimono with an interesting pattern of connecting yellow dots similar to constellations and swirling clouds outlined in yellow with embossed lines on the white centers. A blossoming cherry tree frames the night sky, and a few petals drift down over the scene. The first time we've offered this rare Yoshitoshi subject.
