Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Scene from the Play Shinzo Tsuribune Kidan, 1852

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene from the play " Shinzo Tsuribune Kidan" of two geisha facing each other with swords. At right, the Edo geisha Danshichijima Okaji draws her sword with a grin as she stares at her companion. At left, the Osaka geisha Issun no Otoku looks back at her out of the corner of her eyes, grinning slyly. At left, the boatman Tsuribune no Tobei watches with an alarmed frown, his lips pressed tightly together. A string of Buddhist prayer beads hangs over his ear, a practice thought to help curb temper. From left, the actors are Sawamura Chojuro V, Onoe Kikujiro II, and Bando Shuka I. An unusual subject with large expressive figures.
