Scene from Hitokanade kodakara Soga, 1856

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene from the play "Hitokanade kodakara Soga" at the Nakamura Theater of the courtesan Segawa of the Matsubaya offering a pipe to the blind man Kiriyama Kenko. She smiles happily as he reaches for it, kneeling on the floor beside him with a tobacco set and a lamp on the floor nearby. At right, Goiya Kyonosuke looks through the window with slight frown, his hands tucked into his sleeves. At upper left, lacquer boxes and scrolls rest on shelves above panels with bamboo, and quilts are stacked at right. At upper right, a screen decorated with peonies offers privacy for the pair. From left, the actors are Iwai Kumesaburo III, Seki Sanjuro III, and Kataoka Nizaemon II. A handsome design with a nicely detailed interior setting.
