Emilio, this print shows Monnosuke III as a 'komuso' priest at the Sanja Matsuri (the Sanja Festival) in Edo. It was one section of a seven-part 'transformation' (hengemono) dance, the title of which was 'Nana tokoro Megumi no Hatsukane'. It was performed at the Ichimura Theatre in the 3rd month of 1822.
By the way, did you write an email to a friend of mine recently?
Best wishes, Paul Griffith.
