Nozarashi Gosuke and Oshige

Comments - Interesting kabuki double portrait of actors in the roles of otokodate or street knight Nozarashi Gosuke and the beauty Oshige. He grins slyly as he looks over his shoulder, a pipe in hand, while the beauty smiles as she looks up at him. A handsome and unusual format featuring insets with verses alongside each figure.
