Comments - Great kabuki portrait of a matron subduing a samurai attacking her, pushing down the back of his neck as she holds with wrist of his sword arm. She looks up over her shoulder with a suspicious frown, seeming unconcerned about the violence taking place. She wears a pink kimono over a red under robe, the white collars and trim detailed with a faintly embossed pattern, her hair simply arranged with a large loop with a single wooden ornament. The background is softly shaded from green to light blue, adding interesting. The title block takes the form of a book. A handsome design with an expressive figure.
