Comments - Interesting kabuki triple portrait showing a worried looking beauty kneeling beside a religious pilgrim. She looks over her shoulder with eyes wide, her mouth slightly agape, clutching her sleeve to her chest. She wears a blue and gray plaid kimono, a towel draped over one shoulder, and her hair is pulled back into a knot with a few wisps framing her face. The pilgrim scowls down at her, gripping a shakujou, a traditional staff topped with a ringed finial, a portable shrine strapped to his back. A third man stares at the woman, his brows furrowed. Two small toads sit on the ground before the beauty. An intriguing subject with expressive faces and a soft color palette.
