Samurai outside a Castle, 1881

Comments - Handsome kabuki portrait of a samurai outside a castle, leaning forward with an angry frown as he grips his sword. His hair is pulled into a low ponytail over his back, and the loose wisps of hair framing his face give him a somewhat disheveled appearance. The castle appears in silhouette against softly shaded mountains in the distance. An interesting subject.

Image Size - 14 1/8" x 9 1/4" + margins as shown
