Comments - Great kabuki portrait of Ichikawa Danjuro as a magician casting a spell, twisting his hands in a magical gesture as he looks over his shoulder with an angry frown. He wears a black kimono with a burnished pattern of squares and flowers over a white kimono decorated with clouds and a suit of armor. The sinuous body of a dragon appears behind him at left along with a red flame. A striking design, beautifully detailed.
