Scene from Soga Moyo Tateshi no Goshozome, 1864

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene from Act 2 of the play "Soga Moyo Tateshi no Goshozome" at the Ichimura Theater. At left, a young samurai kneels on the floor, frowning angrily as he watches the fellow at right out of the corners of his eyes. At right, the rogue scowls back at him as he tucks up the back of his black kimono, his cased sword in his other hand. Short hair sticks up wildly atop his head, his longer locks pulled into a knot at the back of his neck. At right, a courtesan looks up at him suspiciously, preparing to draw the sword at her side. Outside the home at left, a plum tree is dotted with blossoms and buds. From left, the actors are Ichimura Kakitsu IV, Seki Sanjuro III, and Bando Mitsugoro VI. Nice detail in the setting, with burnishing on the black kimono.
