Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Matsumoto Koshiro as a Rogue with a Sword
Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of Matsumoto Koshiro as a rogue climbing the wooden steps of a small country shrine at night, his sword resting against his shoulder. He leans forward with an angry grimace, wearing a black and white outer robe over a green print kimono, light blue pants, and a suit of armor. His short hair sticks up atop his head with longer locks falling loosely over his shoulders. A nice expressive figure in an unusual setting.
