Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Samurai with a Lantern
Comments - Handsome kabuki portrait of a samurai holding up a lantern as he stands in a garden at night. He leans forward with an angry frown, his other hand resting atop the hilt of his sword. A bamboo fence can be seen at left, and a stone lantern sits on the ground at right, with a rooftops and trees in dark silhouette int the distance. An interesting setting.
