Comments - Great kabuki portrait of Ichimura Kakitsu IV as Amakawaya Igo in the "Kanadehon Chushingura," the tale of the 47 ronin, frowning unhappily as he looks ahead. He wears a black and white striped coat over his kimono, and carries a woven hat, his sword at his side. A red sash over his shoulder is tied around a cloth-wrapped parcel and a small wicker trunk. The diagonal edge of a sign hanging overhead adds a dynamic element to the composition. Nicely colored and detailed with fine line work in the hair.
