Nakamura Shikan as Ohatsu, 1819

Comments - Great kabuki portrait of Nakamura Shikan as the beauty Ohatsu, eavesdropping from behind a blind. She frowns angrily as she leans forward to listen, her chin tilted up defiantly. Her intricately patterned green kimono is tied with a black and gray obi decorated with cherry blossoms. At lattice window can be seen at upper left with a rolled up blind above. A nice expressive figure in an interesting interior setting, nicely detailed.
