Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of two actors holding open books and slender pointers. The fellow at left grins slyly as he watches his companion, who stares back at him suspiciously. Each wears a boldly patterned blue and white kimono and has a dotted cloth draped over his head. The background is softly shaded in rose across the top and green below. The actor in the right panel is Sawamura Tossho II. Nice expressive figures.
