Hi,
Our friends at the Asian Arts Forum inform me that my woodblock plate is of the sum wrestler Onmogawa Saisuke by Yoshiiku, dating from 1859. The woodblock plate was carved by Hori take.
Does anyone have reference to a print pulled from this plate or a print from the series. I have not seen Yoshiiku's name written like this before in a cartouche like this.
First photo is reversed and in negative to help matters.
Best Michael
