What a nice Osaka print. The print is signed Ichijuen Sadamasu. The publisher is Kinkado. It depicts the actor Nakamura Shikan II as Inuyama Dosetsu from the play "Hakkenden". The print likely dates from 1834. You should compare this version with the one illustrated in Dean Schwaab's Osaka Prints (Rizzoli 1989) on the cover and at page 166. Your copy of the print contains differing seals-- the import of those seals I do not know.
