This print was designed by Utagawa Toyokuni I and published by Nichimuraya Yohachi (Eijudo), publisher's mark at the left.
At the right, next to the signature, is a kiwame censor's seal and the date seal for 1809, 12th month.
The print shows two kabuki actors during their leisure time, watching a lion dance, probably performed for the New Year.
The actor with the black coat is Sawamura Gennosuke, the other onnagata actor, dressed as a woman, could be Iwai Hanshiro.

Guy.
