Nakamura Tsuruzo I as Tsuribune no Sabu, 1863 - Terrific kabuki portrait of Nakamura Tsuruzo I as fishing boat Sabu, looking to the side with a worried grimace, his arms folded across his chest. He wears a striking embossed shirt patterned with a dragon clutching a sacred jewel, the sleeves of his boldly patterned blue and white kimono pushed down to the waist. A tangles of ropes frames the scene at upper left, and the background is shaded from blue to white to green. A great expressive figure, beautifully detailed with additional embossing on the white areas of the kimono and a dusting of mica across the top of the sky.
