Sanbasô

1000: Sanbasô (Kaname)

The character Sanbasô has a long history - stretching back over a thousand years of Noh drama. Originally a character in the drama Okina, the name (lit. "3rd person") is said to come from the fact that this character was the third to dance.

Kaname here portrays the character as later adopted in kabuki, in a classic formal pose.

Detail

The painter Ozuma Kaname was born in 1939, in Niigata. He studied traditional Japanese art, and his pictures are generally based on traditional themes.

Ozuma is his family name: he signs paintings with the single character of his given name only.
