Dear Hans Olof Johansson,
I was always attracted to japanese woodblock prints when I happened to see one as a reproduction in a book, but so far that was about it.
Some weeks ago I stumbled across a framed print, which I was able to identify as a work done by Kunisada II printed in 1858, which took me some effort, since I did not know your site then, unluckily.
Now here I find this print depicted in your gallery as the sole example by Kunisada II which puzzeled me.
My question: is this a very common print or is this a pure incident?
BTW: I bought the print on a german flea market, and on the back of the frame there are marks and a sticker of a Pittsburgh department store (around 1900-1920, I guess).
Thank you for taking the trouble & best regards
Markus Wehner
