Original Shunei (1762 - 1819) Japanese Woodblock Print
Actor as a Samurai outside a Gate
Comments - Handsome kabuki portrait of a samurai standing outside the entrance gate to a mansion, looking ahead with a slightly worried expression. He wears an intricately dotted kamishimo over a solid color kimono, his two swords at his side. His thinning hair is pulled back into a slender topknot. An attractive design with an expressive figure, nicely composed.
