Nakamura Fukusuke I as Ishikawa Goemon, 1855  by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Nakamura Fukusuke I as Ishikawa Goemon, 1855

Comments - Terrific scene from the kabuki play popularly known as "Gosan no Kiri." Here, the famous thief Ishikawa Goemon stands on the verandah of the lower gate at Nazenji Temple, forcing the guard Iwabuchi Ganroku to his knees by grabbing hold of his iron truncheon and twisting it behind his neck. Goemon scowls angrily, his lips tightly pressed together in a frown, holding a poem slip aloft in his other hand. He wears a beautiful black kimono with a burnished geometric pattern, a heavy outer kimono featuring a dragon and a green brocade lining draped over his shoulders. Nakamura Fukusuke I plays Ishikawa Goemon. Beautifully colored and detailed, with cherry blossoms framing the scene overhead. A handsome illustration from this famous drama.
