Nakamura Shikan IV, 1867 - Interesting kabuki portrait of Nakamura Shikan as a samurai drawing a sword, staring over his shoulder with a tightlipped frown. He wears a furry black coat over a blue brocade kimono tucked into pants, a blue sash tied around his waist. Square insets above contain poems, set against a red tie-dyed textile pattern that adds graphic interest. An expressive figure, beautifully detailed with burnishing on the black kimono and embossing on the white collar and trim.
