Drastic Price Reduction Moved to Clearance, Act Fast!

Comments - Handsome kabuki portrait of Kawarazaki Gonnosuke V as Sakai Saemon in the play Taiko no Oto Chiyu Sanryaku," which premiered at the Murayama Theater in 1873. Saemon was a loyal retainer of Tokugawa Ieyasu, and the play concerns an attack on Hamamatsu Castle by the Takeda clan. Badly outnumbered, Ieyasu decided to light bonfires and leave the front gate of the castle open in an effort to confuse the enemy, while Saemon beat the drum in the tower loudly. The trick worked, and the Takeda clan retreated. Here, Saemon strikes a pose gripping the post of the tower, the drum hanging behind him. At left, the banners and standards of the approaching troops can be seen. Nicely composed.

Artist - Ginko (active 1874 - 1897)

Image Size - 13 3/4" x 9 1/4"

Condition - Nice color and good detail. Backed with paper.
