Signed: Kunichika hitsu
Series: 100 Roles of Danjuro IX
Publisher: Fukuda Kumajiro

Very good impression and colors. Album backing. Deluxe printing with metallic pigments, burnishing and gaufrage effects.


“Shigemori Kangen” was written by Kawatake Mokuami (at that time Shinshichi) and premiered by Danjuro IX in May 1876 at Nakamura-za. It is one of the Living History plays, therefore Danjuro wears realistic beard. This became one of the most popular repertoire for Danjuro IX and was chosen into Shin Kabuki Juhachiban.
