New Kyogen: Shimoyo no Kane Juji no Tsujiura (Crossroads at Ten Bells on a Frosty Night), 1880 by Chikashige (active circa 1869 - 1882)

Original Chikashige (active circa 1869 - 1882) Japanese Woodblock Print
New Kyogen: Shimoyo no Kane Juji no Tsujiura (Crossroads at Ten Bells on a Frosty Night), 1880

Comments - Bold kabuki scene from the play "Kane Juji no Tsujiura" (Crossroads at Ten Bells on a Frosty Night). In the scene at Ueno Sanmei Bridge, Konpira has just witnessed the masseur Shuan robbing and murdering a young man, then throwing the body into the river. At left, Shuan sits on a box with a tengu mask on the side of it, wearing a white robe and carrying a walking stick. He glares up at Konpira angrily, who demands the stolen money. Suddenly, the policeman Sugita Kaoru appears at right, holding up a lantern as he watches the men. The bridge can be seen behind him, with a signboard in the center along the embankment. Buildings stretch out along the opposite shore, with small figures of a beauty and a young man beyond. At upper right, a windmill can be seen. From left, the actors are Nakamura Nakazo, Ichikawa Sadanji, and Onoe Kikugoro. The play is a sewamono or domestic drama portraying contemporary people rather than depicting historic subjects. A striking design with an interesting setting.
