Original Yoshiiku (1833 - 1904) Japanese Woodblock Print
Nakamura Shikan as Sano Genzaemon and Sawamura Tanosuke as Kakezara, 1865
Comments - Dramatic kabuki scene of Sano Genzaemon riding through deep floodwaters to rescue the beauty Kakezara, who is stranded atop the roof of a house. The water splashes around the chest of the animal as Genzaemon stares ahead with a tightlipped frown. The beauty kneels atop the straw roof, clutching a sword wrapped in brocade cloth. From left, the actors are Nakamura Shikan and Sawamura Tanosuke. A striking design.
