Comments - Handsome kabuki scene of a courtesan and a companion in private quarters. The beauty smiles happily as she looks up at him, but he regards her with a solemn expression. He wears a black kimono patterned with stylized motifs of carps and waves. A striking red kimono with two dragons hangs on a black lacquer stand behind the couple. At left, a woman looks furtively back at them. Behind her, a black lacquer chest is topped with sliding panels decorated with colorful autumn maple leaves. The actor at right is Ichikawa Danjuro. An attractive design with lively color and nice detail in the setting and clothing, including embossing on the courtesan's white collar.
