Normally, Japanese archives do a much better job at reading the cursive script, so that I am surprised to even see two mistakes here.

While they got Kuniyoshi 国美 right, the first three characters of the name are not 熊真亭 but rather read ‘shinsai 應[=応]真斎 instead.

The signature indeed belongs to the same artist as discussed before in this thread.

We can take this once again as a reminder not to trust any archive or museum without checking the script ourselves again.
