Original Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861) Japanese Woodblock Print
Ichimura Uzaemon XII as Kambara Sashichi, 1849
Comments - Handsome kabuki portrait Ichimura Uzaemon XII as Kambara Sashichi looking over his shoulder with a worried smile, his eyes wide as he tucks one hand inside his robe. He wears a brown striped kimono over a red under robe tied with a black obi, his hair pulled back into a topknot with a few hairs sticking out on either side. Lanterns on poles behind him feature scenes, including a man balancing a rock upon his tongue. A nice scene from the drama "Kotoba no hana momiji no Yozakari," with an interesting format.
