Scene from Mono Gusataro, 1825

Comments - Handsome kabuki scene from the play Mono Gusataro" at the Ichimura Theater in Edo, a drama about the samurai Nagoya Sanza, who was banished by his clan after a valuable scroll in his possession was stolen by the evil Fuwa Banzaemon. Here, Sanza eavesdrops from behind a folding screen bordered with maple leaves, an angry expression on his face. In the center, Okuni gozen looks down in alarm, covering her mouth with her sleeve, her eyes wide with fear. At left, Banzaemon looks up with a scowl, holding his sword in one hand while the beauty holds the other end. From left, the actors are Bando Mitsugoro III, Segawa Kikunojo V, and Bando Hikosaburo IV. A handsome early design by Kunisada.
