Summary

This print, one sheet of a triptych, depicts Ichikawa Danjūrō VII holding in one hand an umbrella and in the other a duck, shot with an arrow and clasping a letter in its mouth. Danjūrō wears a kimono with a design of gourds, an emblem of his family since the time when Danjūrō II was given a gourd formerly used by the famous haiku poet Matsuo Bashō to store rice.
