: Do you have any information on this artist and this picture? Thank you for your time.
You will have to be more precise, I'm afraid. There are at least five artists by the name of Hasegawa Sadanobu, the first being Sadanobu I (1809-1879). According to Roger S Keyes and Keiko Mizushima (The Theatrical World of Osaka Prints, Philadelphia 1947, p 239) Sadanobu V was the head of the family in the early 1970s, and he may still be active as a painter and print designer.
Yanone means arrow head, and it is also the title of a kabuki play. Could the picture be a scene from this play? Is it a print or a painting?
To be able to help you, I must see the picture, either as a scanned image or a photo.
