Beauty with an Oar and Samurai, 1879

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a samurai emerging through the reeds alongside the water's edge, frowning angrily as he pushes aside the grasses. Behind him, a beauty smiles down at him, holding an oar with both hands. Her hair is pulled into a bun adorned with a tie-dyed ribbon, a small comb, and a hairpin. Undulating water fills the background behind the pair. The actor at right is Nakamura Sojuro. A handsome double portrait.

Artist - Kunichika (1835 - 1900)

Image Size - 13 7/8" x 8 7/8"

Condition - Good color and detail. Vertical fold at side. A few creases, slight rubbing at edge.
