This print shows a scene from act 6 of the great playwright Kawatake Mokuami II's kabuki play The Chrysanthemum and the Paulonia: A Net-Patterned Stone Lantern. This play, commonly known as "The Little Monkey Shichinosuke," was first performed in 1857 at the Nakamura theater in Edo. In this scene, the character of Kuragano Yoshibei beats Onami with his pipe over the string of money lying by her hand as the tea-shop mistress Oshûden Okuma looks on. This picture was originally published as two separate prints, as can be seen in the changing colors along the midline.
