Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a samurai in a doorway at left, throwing his hand up in the air with an angry frown as he looks inside the house. In the center, a beauty pulled on a rope hanging from the ceiling looks back at the visitor suspiciously. At right, a kneeling man turns his face away, holding his hand to his face and gripping a sword in his other hand. A basin of water rests on the floor between the couple, and flower decorate the panels lining the back of the room. Beautifully detailed with a burnished pattern on the samurai's coat at left. Nice expressive figures in a well-detailed setting.
