Ichikawa Ebizo V as Banzui Chobei and Kawarazaki Gonjuro I as Shirai Gonpachi, 1858 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Ichikawa Ebizo V as Banzui Chobei and Kawarazaki Gonjuro I as Shirai Gonpachi, 1858

Comments - Interesting kabuki double portrait featuring Ichikawa Ebizo V as the famous otokodate Banzui Chobei and Kawarazaki Gonjuro I as Shirai Gonpachi, who is wanted for the murder of his uncle, in the play "Koharu no En Mitsugumi Sakazuki." After the pair meet at Suzu-ga-Mori and Gonpachi fights off a gang trying to capture him for the reward, Chobei hands him a letter from a messenger that has fallen on the ground. Gonpachi looks up from the message with a sober frown as he realizes it is a warrant for his arrest. Chobei holds a lantern up over him, grimacing unhappily, a plaid robe draped over his shoulder. Nice expressive figure with soft shading in the night sky.

Image Size - 14" x 9 3/4" + top margin as shown
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Slight paper remnants on reverse at top corners from previous mounting. Slight toning, a couple small marks. Please see photos for details.
