Comments - Great kabuki scene of Ichikawa Kodanji IV as famous robber Ishikawa Goemon shaving in the play "Konoshita Soga Megumi no Masagoji." He sit on the floor beside a mirror on a stand, holding his cheek taught as he uses a straight razor. The henchman behind him seems agitated, throwing out his arms with an angry grimace. At left a young beauty cowers while an older man behind her pleads with the criminal. Detailed with a light burnished spiral pattern in the black squares on Goemon's kimono. An intriguing subject, with an interesting setting.
