Comments - Handsome kabuki scene of an angry confrontation between a commoner and a samurai. At left, the commoner stares over his shoulder with a worried frown as he grips a sword in one hand, the loose hair at his face giving him a disheveled appearance. The samurai glares back at him angrily, a lantern in one hand. He wears a black coat with a collar decorated with swirling thunderclouds over a black kimono and suit of armor. The black coat features a beautiful burnished lozenge and cloud pattern. The beauty at right grins happily, seemingly unaware of the conflict. Nice large expressive figures set against a softly shaded night sky.
