Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Melancholy Samurai

Comments - Handsome kabuki design of a rather melancholy looking samurai clinging to a pillar as he looks out over a courtyard garden. His head slightly bowed, his thoughts seems elsewhere, his expression sad. He wears a dark gray kimono trimmed with a red and white checked fabric with cranes in flight and pine trees. His hair is pulled back into a neatly laced topknot, and he wears white tabi socks. An interesting setting with rustic wood framing the building and bamboo bars on the window. A poignant, expressive figure.
