The actors' drawings depict kabuki and actors. The author is Kuniyoshi Utagawa(歌川国芳)was an active ukiyo-e artist(浮世絵師)in the late Edo period. The characteristic of his work is quirky. For example, his works include bold composition, personification, and Western-style expressions. In this work, "Fox Tadanobu(狐忠信)," the fourth stage of "Yoshitsune Senbonzakura(義経千本桜)," a masterpiece by Kuniyoshi Utagawa, is depicted. In addition, this work expresses a scene in which a little fox who has lost its parents returns to its old home with joy by adding a drum of Hatsune(初音の鼓)received from Yoshitsune.
