Album of Kabuki Theatre Actors in their Roles Artists

Katsukawa Shunkô

These portraits of actors with expressive faces offer a precious glimpse of kabuki theatre in Japan during the Edo period. Featuring stylised drama, this stage art became a favourite leisure activity and a popular subject for Japanese prints.
