Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a samurai in a bamboo print kimono holding out a large red lacquer sake cup in one hand as he grips the hilts of his sword with the other, scowling angrily. One foot rests atop the end of the courtesan Takao's black outer kimono, which features maple leaves and a stream. She smiles at him as she looks back over her shoulder, seemingly unconcerned by his anger. Paper lanterns and drapery with bamboo leaves hang overhead. Bando Shuka I plays Takao. Nice expressive figures.
