Confrontation at the Seashore, 1853

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a confrontation taking place at the seashore. In the center, a boatman holds a young child under one arm as he throws his other hand up in the air, a worried expression on his face. The elderly man at right grabs hold of the child's kimono, scowling angrily as he looks in the opposite direction. At left, a beauty tilts her head as she watches the boatman with a sly smile, having just thrown a lantern onto the ground. Undulating waves fill the background with plovers flying across the water. Nicely detailed with embossing on the elderly man's curly white hair and beard.
