Anthology of One Hundred Kumadori - Terrific woodblock print from a Taisho era series depicting kumadori, a distinctive type of kabuki makeup used for aragoto characters. Aragoto refers to an exaggerated style of acting used to depict heroic warriors, demons, or fierce gods. The bombastic style encompasses all elements of the role, including hair, makeup, dialogue, and costume. These striking designs depict bold and colorful makeup, often giving the characters a frightening or otherworldly appearance, with the name of the makeup in Japanese at upper right. Published by Engei Chinsho Kankou-kai in 1915, these images are a fantastic choice for a kabuki enthusiast or historian of theater.
