Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Insides a Teahouse, 1852

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene taking place inside a teahouse. At right, a distraught man holds out a handful of tissues as he looks up at a beauty, a tobacco pouch or purse in his other hand. In the center, a man raises a pipe above his head with an anguished expression while the fellow behind him dances about on one foot, waving a fan. A man bowing before him reaches up to him. At left, an unshaven man sits on a bed while another man eavesdrops from behind a screen patterned with cherry blossoms and swallow. Nice expressive figures in a well detailed setting.
