Series; Flowers of the Theatrical World

Nakamura Ganjiro I as Akaneya Hanshichi, 1920 - Fantastic portrait of the actor Nakamura Ganjiro I as Akaneya Hanshichi, based on his performance in the play "Akane-zome" at the Shintomi Theater in 1917. The son of a sake merchant, Hanshichi has abandoned his wife Osone to live with the courtesan Sankatsu, with whom he has a child. Wanted for murdering a man in a brawl, Hanshishi has been released on bail, paid by his father, and he and Sankatsu decide to commit lovers' suicide together. Here, he looks down with a somewhat haughty expression. He wears a patterned green kimono over a striped brown and black robe, the orange of the collar adding a note of color. The background is beautifully detailed with a shimmering silver mica. This image that was featured in the groundbreaking 1930 shin-hanga exhibit at the Toledo Museum of Art. A handsome, sensitive, and expressive figure. The first time we have offered this striking design.
