Conversation with a Nobleman, 1879

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of two noblemen in black court robes and caps surrounded by samurai. At bottom center, a warrior looks up with a defiant expression as one of the nobleman frowns back at him. At lower right, a man offers what might be a roll of papers, while a lower left, another fellow holds out a black lacquer box topped with a smaller red lacquer box. Large crests against a purple background create a striking setting. Beautifully detailed with burnished patterns on the black robes.
