Sawamura Tanosuke III as a Fireman, 1860 - Handsome kabuki portrait of Sawamura Tanosuke III in the role of a fireman, looking up into the night sky with a sly smile as he holds the knot of a robe tied over his shoulders. He wears a quilted robe with a striking image of a snake, the intricate stitching carefully detailed, over a black under garment, a dotted towel draped over his shoulder. A spattering of hand-applied dark red pigment simulates ashes drifting in the wind. A nice design.
