Threatening a Man in a Red Wig, 1881 by Chikanobu (1838 - 1912)

Original Chikanobu (1838 - 1912) Japanese Woodblock Print
Threatening a Man in a Red Wig, 1881

Comments - Bold kabuki scene of a samurai threatening a man wearing a shaggy red wig topped with a fox figurine. At left, the attacker thrusts a short sword at his intended victim, who recoils in alarm. At right, a nobleman looks up with a sober expression, not following the conflict at all. He wears a blue robe patterned with cranes in flight and rings of waves over a red floral and scroll kimono, and a black court cap. At upper left, an aqua robe with a design of cranes and pine branches hangs over a lacquer stand. From left, the actors are Ichikawa Danjuro IX, Ichikawa Sadanji I, and Bando Kakitsu. An interesting subject with large colorful figures, beautifully detailed with a burnished geometric pattern on the black kimono, burnishing on the black court cap, and metallic pigment that has oxidized to a dark tone on the fox figurine.
