The Fox Tadanobu and Lady Shizuka in Yoshitsune Sembon Zakura
From an untitled series of horizontal kabuki portraits
Kabuki Portraits - Handsome scene from an untitled series by Yoshiiku of kabuki portraits depicting famous characters. These attractive designs are carefully drawn, with expressive faces, decorative borders or backgrounds, and lively color. Many feature deluxe embellishments, such as embossing, burnishing, or a dusting of mica. The horizontal chuban format is unusual for kabuki prints. A great choice for a kabuki enthusiast.
Special detail - Embossing on the white fur robe and the white kimono collar, allover dusting of mica.
