In Reply to: If that is kunisada II,what is it without toshiddama seal? posted by Fred on March 22, 2002 at 14:49:22:
This signature is inscribed in an oblong toshidama seal in the way Kunisada (Toyokuni III, 1786-1864) used to do from the early 1850's onwards. It reads Shichi-jû-hachi-nen Toyokuni hitsu ("Painted by Toyokuni at the age of 78").
The seal above the signature indicates that the print was published in the 6th month of 1863.
The fanshaped landscape is signed by Hiroshige - most probably Hiroshige II.
