Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Matron and Worried Man, 1857
Comments - Interesting kabuki scene of a couple in an interior. The man looks over his shoulder with a worried expression as he tugs on the collar of his black coat, a tobacco set in his hand. The matron grins happily as she waves her hand, unaware of her companion's discomfort. At left, small desks are stacked along the back of the room, and tie-dyed curtains hang in the doorway. Nice expressive figures in a handsomely detailed setting.
