Osagawa Tsuneyo II probably as Ayame, the wife of Sadanoshin and the mother of Shigenoi.
|| New Reproduction
||210mm x 309mm
This attribution is distinctly doubtful, as the full play-bill is missing and we do not know who took the part of Ayame. We do know, however, that someone did and that Tsuneyo acted in the production; and the costume and make-up shown here seem more appropriate to Ayame than to any other listed role.
The outer robe is faded blue; the inner one rose. The obi is in black and the head cloth is faded violet.
