A reprint of the ukiyo-e style print originally done by Torii Kiyomasu. Ichikawa Danjūrō I (Shodai Ichikawa Danjūrō) (1660–1704) was an early kabuki actor in Japan. He remains today one of the most famous of all kabuki actors and is considered one of the most influential. His many influences include the pioneering of the aragoto style of acting which came to be largely associated with Edo kabuki and with Danjūrō and his successors in the Ichikawa Danjūrō line. Ichikawa Danjuro in the Role of Soga Goro is likely one of the most famous of all early Torii works, and the most famous depiction of Danjūrō I.
