Ichikawa Ichizo III as Sangobei and Sawamura Tanosuke III as Koman, 1860
Series; Comparisons of Lovers, a Collection of Ballads

Comparisons of Lovers, a Collection of Ballads - Handsome double portrait from a Toyokuni III series pairing famous kabuki couples with "hauta," love songs that were popular during the Edo era. Each design features two expressive figures in moods ranging from happy or sad to angry or worried. The clothing and accessories are beautifully detailed, and some prints include deluxe publishing techniques such as embossing or burnishing. The title cartouche takes the form of a book in an upper corner, with the text of the ballad above the figures. An interesting design from this seldom seen series.

Special detail - Embossing on the white kimono collar.
