Comments - Interesting kabuki portrait of Ichikawa Sadanji as Torazo in a play at the Shintomiza or Shintomi Theater, sitting along the shore. He looks over his shoulder with an angry scowl, one hand resting against his chin and the other holding a shell. A lock and chain around his waist indicate that he is a prisoner, and he wears a rust colored robe with writing on the collar. A paddlewheel steamship can be seen on the water in the distance. A nice expressive figure with fine bokashi shading in the background.
