Frightened Beauty Omiyo, 1887 by Kunichika (1835 - 1900)

Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Frightened Beauty Omiyo, 1887

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of the beauty Omiyo turning away in fright from an angry man who has grabbed hold of her sleeve. She looks up out of the corners of her eyes with a wary expression, trying to keep hold of her robe with one hand. The fellow at upper right glares at his companion, who also has grabbed the beauty's sleeve. Above, tree trunks frame a view of a mansion with a large wooden gate at upper left. This play is an example of a "Zangirimono" or "Cropped Hair Play," a genre which depicted contemporary Meiji characters in real-life dramas involving ordinary people. It takes its name from the close-cropped hairstyle adopted by men during the Meiji era. From left, the actors are Nakamura Fukusuke, Ichikawa Danjuro, and Ichikawa Sadanji. Nice expressive figures detailed with fine line work in the hair.
