Kawarazaki Gonjuro I as Azuma no Yoshiro, 1861

Comments - Handsome portrait of Kawarazaki Gonjuro I as Azuma no Yoshiro in the kabuki play "Modori Kago Iro ni Aikata." Yoshiro is actually the general Mashiba Hisayoshi, working as a palanquin bearer while he pursues the notorious bandit Ishikawa Goemon. He looks up with a frown, his brows slightly furrowed as he fastens a white cloth around his head. He wears a bright blue kimono bordered with motifs of bats in silhouette and flowers over a red brocade robe, and blue cloth sleeves. Nicely detailed with delicate embossing on the white cloth. A great image.
