This print shows a dynamic Kabuki scene of two actors in battle. This print is recognisable as a style from Osaka during the Edo period, which different in both technique and subject from most other Edo era printing, with more subtle and serious figures with distinctive facial expressions. The brash manner of acting popular in Edo, known as aragato, influenced the print designs towards bolder images of heroism or military prowess.
