One of the first prints I purchased was by Kunisada I (Toyokuni III) from 1850, being Utusemi, No. 3 from the series Magic Lantern Slides of That Romantic Purple Figure, (Sono sugata yukari no utsushi-e). I noticed that besides Toyokuni's signature there is smaller signature on a screen in the scene. It appears to start with Kuni and end with hitsu but I can't find a character to match the last character of the name. Can anyone assist in identifying the artist. I'm guessing it's one of the artists students.

Thanks
Chris
