Comments - Handsome scene from the kabuki play "Hanagatami Gojusan Tsugi." Standing beside the garden gate at left, a man plays a kokyo, an instrument similar to a shamisen that is played upright with a bow. He looks down at the beauty with an evil grin, wearing a large woven hat for traveling. The woman smiles up at him sweetly, holding out a small wrapped object on a mirror as she leans forward. Her kimono features a striking pattern of colorful feathers. In the room behind her, fans of flowers and maple leaves decorate the wall. From left, the actors are Nakamura Fukusuke I and Ichikawa Shinsha I. Nice expressive figures in a handsomely detailed setting.
