Summary

This triptych is a rare example from Kunisada's early career. It features the scene of Kumagai's camp from the Kabuki play The Chronicle of the Battle of Ichinotani, which was first performed in 1811. The three actors are arranged one to a sheet, and the artist has captured them striking exaggerated poses (mie) in front of a large, blossoming plum tree.
