Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a beauty conversing with two men. She smiles happily, leaning forward eagerly, waiting for their response. The commoner in the center frowns at the samurai at right, who tilts his head rather sheepishly, looking back out of the corners of his eyes. The beauty seems unaware of the conflict between her companions. Terrific large figures with expressive faces, set against an attractive red background with a geometric tie-dyed pattern.
