New Play at the Meijiza: Ichikawa Danjuro IX as Kagekiyo, 1895 by Kokunimasa (1874 - 1944)

Original Kokunimasa (1874 - 1944) Japanese Woodblock Print
New Play at the Meijiza: Ichikawa Danjuro IX as Kagekiyo, 1895

Comments - Terrific design of Ichikawa Danjuro IX as the warrior Taira no Kagekiyo gripping a naginata, striking a bold pose with one hand thrown out at his side. He frowns angrily as he stares to the side, wearing a white kimono patterned with writing over his armor. His cropped hair sticks out like a bushy halo atop his head, with longer locks over his shoulders and a low ponytail over the back. A light orange curtain is drawn to the side at right, patterned with the actor's name and the three concentric rice measure crest of the Ichikawa Danjuro line of actors. A fantastic design, beautifully detailed with burnishing on the hair and sword hilt.

Artist - Kokunimasa (1874 - 1944)
Image Size - 14 1/8" x 28" + margins as shown
