Hello,

I own this print, but would like to know more about it.  The notes I have for this state the picture was painted by Baido Kunimasa/Utagawa Kunisada III and that it’s title is, “Gate Pine and Spring Mistrel”.  Can anyone verify that the notations I have are correct?  If not, can anyone tell me the correct information or anything that wasn’t already in the note?  Any information would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

    Yes, the artist is Kunisada III, signing "Baidō Kunimasa hitsu".
    The print title could be "Torioi in spring time at a kadonomatsu [= pine gate]" (Kadonomatsu haru no Torioi - 門の松春の鳥追)
    Actors and roles (partially read) from left:
    Nakamura Sōjūrō (中村宗十郎) as Chūzō (忠蔵)
    Sawamura Hyakunosuke (沢村百之助) as Torioi Omatsu (鳥追おまつ)
    Ichikawa Sadanji (市川左團次) as Ōsakayoshi (?) (大坂吉)
    Play: Nijūyo-ji kaisei ishinwa (廿四時改正新話), theatre unknown (Tokyo)
    Date: Meiji 11 (1878)
