The Night Attack of the 47 Ronin, 1884 - Terrific kabuki scene from the night attack on Moronao's palace by the famous 47 ronin. Armed with a spear and a sword, two ronin attack one of Moronao's retainers in the snowy courtyard, a full moon in the night sky above. The enemy raises his sword high overhead, ready to strike as the ronin at right thrusts his spear forward. His fellow warrior approaches from the rear, gripping his sword with both hands. Both ronin wear the traditional dogtooth bordered black and white outer kimono, the sleeves tied back with purple sashes. Beautifully printed with burnishing on the black areas of the robes, and embossing on the white parts of the kimono. From left, the actors are Ichikawa Sadanji as Takebayashi Tadashichi, Onoe Kikugoro as Akagaki Genzo, and Ichikawa Danjuro as Kobayashi Heihachiro. Great choice for a collector interested in 47 ronin subjects.
