by Kunichika (1835 - 1900)
Comments - Dramatic kabuki scene of a man attacking a beauty in her bed, raising a sword above his head as he holds the mosquito netting in his other hand, biting his lower lip in anger. The beauty recoils, throwing her hand out in self-defense, an overturned pillow at her side. An alcove behind them hold a hanging scroll and a vase of irises, a koto leaning against the wall and a pair of swords resting in a black lacquer box below. Nice expressive figures in a handsomely detailed interior setting. Including metallic pigment that has oxidized to a dark tone on the sword.
