Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Angry Samurai in a Dragon Kimono, 1879

Comments - Striking kabuki scene of a samurai grimacing angrily as he looks to the side while a warrior glares up at him from behind his woven hat. The samurai wears a blue kimono patterned with a dragon and swirling clouds, a fan in one hand resting atop the hilt of his sword. At left, a beauty in a black floral robe watches with an alarmed expression, while the young woman at right smiles happily, seemingly unaware of the conflict taking place beside her. Nice large colorful figures set off by a deep blue background. Detailed with burnishing on the black kimono.
