Five Chivalrous Men beside a Sake Display, 1879 - Intriguing kabuki triptych of five otokodate or chivalrous men in front of a display of stacked casks of sake. The fellow at left grimaces angrily as he looks up at his companion standing in the center, who stares back at him soberly. Each wears a solid color kimono over a red under robe, tied with a red and black print obi, and each has a blue and white towel. A large sign and red paper lantern frame the scene at left. Nice expressive figures. The first time we have seen this Chikanobu subject.
