When I bought this print years ago, the dealer said it was Sadanobu (signature looks right) - Kataoka Gadô II as Kyuhachirô - series: Chűkô Fukushű Den. But I can't find any information on the character or the series. Nothing on ukiyo-e.org, google or Kabuki 21. The print is not in any of the standard Osaka print books (Keyes, Schwab, Ikeda Bunko 5, van Doesburg, Waseda Kamigata later period). Are the names of the role and the series correct? Unfortunately, I don't read Japanese. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
