Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Arashi Kichisaburo as a Nobleman
Comments - Handsome kabuki portrait of Arashi Kichisaburo as a nobleman sitting on a cushion at the top of a flight of stairs. He scowls angrily as he looks over his shoulder, a fan in one hand and the other atop a lacquer arm rest. He wears a purple coat patterned with paulownia and trimmed with a pleated print collar over a blue and white kimono, tied with a green floral obi. A folding screen behind him is decorated with splashing waves. An attractive design with a nicely detailed setting.
