Comments - Great kabuki portrait of Nakamura Kanjaku as a commoner brandishing a sword, scowling angrily as he holds the weapon between his hands. Before him, a beauty recoils as she thrusts a long letter at him. The background features a red tie-dyed textile pattern, adding graphic impact. Nicely detailed with fine line work in the hair and metallic pigment that has oxidized to a dark tone on the sword.
