An 1894 war triptych covering an episode of the Sino-Japanese conflict (title: 日本陸軍牙山清兵追), has two signatures:

1- 香朝楼画 ('Kchr ga') referring to Kunisada III;
2- 国秀補筆 ('Kunihide hohitsu' i.e. 'retouches or corrections by Kunihide').

I presume that Kunihide, at that time, was a pupil/assistant, working with Kunisada III in his studio.
