Commoner Attacking a Beauty, 1874 - Beautiful kabuki triptych depicting a commoner attacking a beauty on a veranda. He tugs on the end of her red tie-dyed obi as she tries to free herself, tossing a packet of tissues at his head and holding on to her sash. He grimaces, gripping a sword in his other hand. He wears a grey and white patterned kimono shadowed in black, a white cloth tied under his chin. At right, a samurai watches soberly, shielding a lantern with the sleeve of his black coat. From left, the actors are Sawamura Tossho, Kawarazaki Kunitaro, and Ichikawa Danjuro. Nice large figures, detailed with burnishing on the black coat and karazuri on the white cap.
Good condition - triptych from 3 separate prints - no damage or restoration backing.
