: I am looking for a print (on line) of the actor Segawa Kikunojo II as O'hatsu in a play performed in 1767.
: Print has black background (plus chrysanthymums and rice bushels), with the character in a gold and red kimono holding an umbrella.

: Any ideas where a copy of this print may be hiding?

It is a breathtaking print is it not! I illustrated the British Museum copy in 'Japanese Prints 1700-1900' , Phaidon, 1976. I know of no other copy however, unfortunately.
