Bando Hikosaburo V and Sawamura Tossho III, 1856

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene featuring from left Bando Hikosaburo V and Sawamura Tossho III as men strolling along the riverbank in winter. The commoner at left looks over his shoulder with a wary frown, a pipe in one hand. He wears a blue coat over a striped kimono and tied-dyed under robe, along with black leggings and under shirt, a towel draped over his shoulder. The samurai at right looks ahead with a slight sneer, holding his sleeve to his chest. A few boats can be seen on the river and snow blankets the rooftops and pines along the far bank. An attractive winter setting with soft bokashi shading on the water and sky.
