Ichikawa Kamazo standing with umbrella under pine tree. Standing with coat, loincloth (fundoshi) and two swords.
Possibly performed at the Kairaroaoki Theatre from 5/1795.
Does not appear in lists of kabuki plays at this time. Ichikawa Komazo changed his name to Matsumoto Koshiro in 1801, so this print must pre-date.
