Kabukido Enkyo

The Actor Nakamura Nakazo II as Matsuo-maru

The Ukiyo-e is printed on Echizen kizuki hosho washi (a unique kind of Japanese paper) handmade by Ichibei Iwano, a living national treasure. This makes the vivid colors and the soft, warm textures of woodcut prints come to life.

This print portrays the Kabuki actor Nakamura Nakazo the Second playing the part of Mastuomaru in the play "Sugawara Denju Tsnarai Kagami". The artist is known for his stylistic perfection in the portrayal of actors. The large nose and tightly closed mouth with its ends pulled down give a remarkably vivid depiction of the actor on stage.
