Nanaetsumen - Interesting scene of a man performing the kabuki play "Nanetsumen" (The Seven Masks) for a nobleman, soberly waving a fan as he strikes a pose looking over his shoulder. The nobleman sits regally on a red mat at right, calmly resting his hands atop his fan. Two women watch from lower right, their hairstyles detailed with fine line work and burnishing. Striped gray and white cloth panels provide privacy for the group, the cloth strung between a maple tree and a pole. An intriguing subject, beautifully detailed with burnishing on the black areas of the kimono, silver mica on the fan and hairpins, and faint cloth embossing on the white stripes of the cloth panels.
