Ichimura Uzaemon XIII as the Beggar Setsuhei, 1864 - Interesting kabuki portrait of Ichimura Uzaemon XIII as the beggar Setsuhei in the play "Soga Moyo Tateshi no Goshozome." He looks up suspiciously over his shoulder with a sneer, a blue and white cloth draped over his head. In one hand he holds an open book, pointing at it with a straw in his other hand. He wears a striped kimono with insets of bamboo and reeds on the shoulders over a red under robe with a black collar. A nice large expressive figure.
