Hello all,
I'd appreciate it greatly if somebody could ID this Kunichika print for me:
http://www.xs4all.nl/~pega/kunichika.jpg
I hope it suffices to say that I have already searched any other resources I could, but to no avail.

Looks to me like the left panel of a dip/triptych, as the right side is trimmed and the "picture" is "incomplete"

I'm afraid the print is somewhat soiled and has some creasing right across the face of the actor, but I am very fond of this print and I'd love to know some more about it. Thankfully, the picture "doesn't do justice" (have we heard that before? ;-) ), and the print is much brighter and "livelier" than shown.

Many thanks for any help!
Peter
