Hi,
at Wikimedia Commons I found this print: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Utagawa_kunisada,_attore_nella_perte_di_un_monaco_buddista_bambino,_1872.JPG . It's surely not by Kunisada I. :-) But who is the artist? A friendly native Japanase suggests the reading as Kuniyoshi (国芳). That's possible, but I never saw a similar signature from this time (date seal sould be Meiji 8 = 1872). Any idea?
Best wishes to all,
Horst
