Kabuki - Heian Period Court Lady 1910s (by Blue Ruin1)


Under magnification, you can clearly see that the outside corners of his eyes are painted red, indicating that this is a male Kabuki actor in the role of a woman.
I think that he might be Onoe Baikô VI in the play entitled “Heikegani”, which premiered in Osaka during April 1912. “Heikegani” was based on a popular Edo picture book in which a young fisherwoman encounters the spirit of Tamamushi, a Heike court lady from the Heian period (794-1185 CE).
Onoe Baikô VI was one of the best Onnagata of the Meiji, Taisho and the first years of the Showa periods.
