Nun and Man with a Poem Slip, 1877 by Kunichika (1835 - 1900)

Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Nun and Man with a Poem Slip, 1877

Comments - Handsome kabuki triptych depicting a man holding a poem slip, looking over his shoulder with an alarmed expression. He is dressed for hunting with a shoulder protector over his left arm, and fur chaps around his waist. A nun kneels beside him holding out a tea bowl wrapped in cloth, smiling slyly as she looks at him from the corners of her eyes. The seated man at left frowns at the beauty, his lips tightly closed, while the samurai at right watches the man carefully, following his reaction with interest. Two characters from another scene flank the central group, a samurai at left and a concerned beauty at right. From left, the actors are Okuda Tomisaburo, Nakamura Tsuruzo, Ichikawa Metora, Ichikawa Shinjuro, Ichikawa Gonjuro, and Ichikawa Monnosuke. An interesting composition with large figures standing out against the deep red and blue backgrounds.
