Drawing a Sword during an Argument, 1881 by Chikashige (active circa 1869 - 1882)

Original Chikashige (active circa 1869 - 1882) Japanese Woodblock Print
Drawing a Sword during an Argument, 1881

Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a commoner drawing a sword during an argument with a samurai. He scowls angrily, biting his lower lip as he thrusts a dirk at the samurai. He frowns, resting his cased sword against his shoulder while the beauty behind him reacts with surprise. At left, a man waits outside a garden with an umbrella as snow falls heavily through the night sky. A colorful design with fine line work in the hair and burnishing on the black kimono collars.

Image Size - 13 3/4" x 28 7/8"
