Shindō Shigeru „Kunisada: yakushae no sekai“ (The kabuki actor portraits), p. 58, shows a surimono with Omezō I in this role (he dates the performance to 1822/1). Omezō is depicted in the same posture and with the same decorated kimono, so it’s obviously the same production. By the way, I think the print is by Kunisada although I have no signed copy in my catalogue.
