Scenes from the Kanadehon Chushingura, 1885

Comments - Terrific triptych featuring scenes from all the acts of the kabuki play "Kanadehon Chushingura," based on the true story of the 47 ronin. At upper right in Act 1, Lord Hangan and Lord Wakasanosuke meet with Lord Moronao outside the Imperial Palace. At top center in Act 4, Yuranosuke stands holding the dirk with which Lord Hangan has just committed suicide. At far left in Act 11, the ronin drag Moronao from his hiding place in the storage shed during the night attack. A great image telling the complete story of this classic tale of honor and revenge.
