Worried Boatman, 1860
In series field, put: From an untitled series of actors with poems
Worried Boatman, 1860 - Interesting kabuki portrait of a boatman resting on one knee, tilting his head with a worried expression as he holds one finger to his cheek. He wears a boldly checked kimono over a rust colored shirt and black undergarment, and a blue tie-dyed loincloth. His oar rests against the roof of a small shed at left, and a red paper lantern and drapery frame the top of the image. An expressive figure.
