In Reply to: Is it a pure copy from Kunisada ? posted by Michel O on June 02, 2022 at 04:05:03:
The Kunisada print is from the performance of "Yoshitsune Senbon zakura" at Ichiumra theatre in 8/1831
I am aware of several prints originally designed by Kunisada that were later reissued as ireki with changed actors.
Most of the time the changes were made by Kunisada himself, but there are also ireki that show a changed signature and different actors. Here it's an ireki signed Kuniyoshi.
In this case, I can't say from which performance and when the print is with Nakayama Mijoshi in the role of Shizuka.
