Shirabyoshi Dancer and Men beneath a Cherry Tree

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a shirabyoshi dancer performing beneath a blossoming cherry tree, looking down with a rather dismayed expression at a man kneeling at her feet. He glares back at her angrily, a fan in one hand and a purple sash tied around his forehead. At lower right, another fellow scratches his head in a puzzled man as he leans back on one hand. Nice expressive figures with fine detail in the beauty's elegant kimono and hair ornaments.
