Toyohara Kunichika triyptych of the great Ichikawa Danjuro IX in the role of Ferryman Sendo Tombei, and Ichikawa Kodan playing the role of Nitta, a wanted man who has won the affection of Tombei’s daughter, Ofune (played by Sukedakaya Takasuke). The central figure features deluxe treatments including extensive gaufrage (Kara-zuri) to the white hair. Prints trimmed, colors and impression good. Very evocative work.
