The print is signed 'Bais˘en Sadayoshi ga' (梅窓園貞芳画) and refers to the Osaka printmaker Utagawa Sadayoshi (act. ca. 1837-53). Sadayoshi was probably a direct pupil of Sadamasu (i.e. Kunimasu).
The print, published by Tenmaya Kihei (Tenki), depicts Onoe Tamiz˘ II as the servant Ranpei and Onoe Waichi I as his son Shigez˘ in the play 'Saiwai Ariwara keizu', staged at the Horie-za, 1st month 1841.
