Comments - Interesting kabuki scene depicting the name changing ceremony of Nakamura Fukusuke I, who took the name Nakamura Shikan IV in 1860 at the Nakamura Theater. The actor kneels on a red mat with a fan in hand, his sword lying at his side. He looks up with a grin, wearing a blue kamishimo over a sheer black kimono. A decorative curtain across the top features two actor's crests. A handsome design of an unusual subject.
