Kadomatsu, 1865 - Attractive kabuki scene from the New Year play "Kadomatsu." At lower right, a nobleman dressed in a light blue kamishimo patterned with waterwheels holds out his fan. The seated man at left grimaces up at him unhappily. Behind them, a young man in a colorful striped kimono dances about on one foot, waving a folding fan. A traditional New Year's decoration of pine and bamboo can be seen at right, with plum blossoms overhead. The actors are Ichikawa Yaozo VI as the daimyo, Nakamura Kanzaburo XIII as Taro Kaja, and Nakamura Nakazo III (formerly Tsuruzo) as the uncle (Oji). Nice color and detail in this handsome design, also in the collection of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
