Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Samurai Nagasawa Hayata and Frightened Porter, 1854

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a frightened porter who scrambles backwards on the ground, holding his hand out in a stopping gesture. Dressed in black, the samurai Nagasawa Hayata stands next to him, frowning as he looks over his shoulder suspiciously. The warrior carries a large basket hat, his two swords tucked at his side. The porter's yoke and buckets of water rest on the ground nearby, and a ruined building fills the background. Kataoka Gado II appears as Nagasawa. Nicely detailed with soft shading on the ground. An intriguing design.
