This image shows the kabuki character Oniji. Typical for Sharaku's actor portraits is the exaggerated, near to caricature expressiveness. Sharaku is one of the greatest misteries of art history. He popped out of nowhere, created some 140 designs, mostly bust portraits of kabuki actors, and then disappeared from the scene. Numerous theories have been developed and countless books were written trying to give an answer to one of the biggest enigmas in art history.
