Princess Sakura and Nakamura Shikan as the Priest Seigen

Comments - Handsome scene from a kabuki play about the former priest Seigen, whose love for Princess Sakura leads to tragedy. He stands at right, watching the beauty with a distraught expression. Reduced to poverty, his robes are tattered, as is his straw hat. Sakura scowls back at him, lifting her sleeve to hide her face. She wears an elegant outer robe patterned with her namesake cherry blossoms (sakura0, the long sleeves trimmed with bows and tassels. At left, a servant watches the pair suspiciously, a green print apron tied over her kimono and a towel draped over her shoulder. Blossoming cherry trees frame the sky above. An attractive design.
