Minamoto Yoritomo Arguing with Hatakeyama Shigetada, 1884

Comments - Handsome kabuki scene of a group of noblemen arguing. In the center, Minamoto Yoritomo frowns angrily, biting his lower lip. He wears an elegant purple brocade robe patterned with the paulownia symbol of the Minamoto clan and a yellow court cap. A beauty looks over his shoulder with a sympathetic smile. At left, the young samurai Hatakeyama Shigetada glowers back at him, dressed in a black kamishimo over a green print kimono. At right, a man in a voluminous blue robe watches quietly. A reed blind is rolled up overhead, and a standing screen at right depicts a fierce lion atop a rock. From left, the actors are Ichikawa Sumizo V as Hojo Tokimasa, Kataoka Gado III, Kawarazaki Kunitaro III as Masako gozen, Nakamura Shikan IV, and Nakamura Fukusuke IV. Lively color and nicely detailed figures, with burnishing on the black court caps and black robe.
