Shelter from the Rain, 1849 - 1850

Comments - Interesting scene of three travelers taking shelter from the rain under a large tree. The fellow at left grimaces angrily as he waits out the storm, clutching a white cloth in his hand. At right, The beauty Okame and Yohei are dressed as pilgrims with white vests, strings of prayer slips around their necks and woven hats. The beauty smiles sweetly down at her companion as he regards her solemnly, lifting his hat to see her. From left, the actors are Ichikawa Danjuro VIII, Onoe Kikujiro II, and Bando Takesaburo. An attractive design.
