    Both prints are by Kunisada I.

    The left print is the right sheet of "mitate" kabuki triptych ("mitate" here meaning imagined, never performed in reality).
    The data are here:

    The right print is the right sheet of a kabuki triptych, signed "Toyokuni ga".
    Depicted are (from left): Iwai Kumesaburō III and Morita Kanya XI as Miyagino and Daikokuya Soroku in the play "Kana kyōdai musume adauchi", performed at the Ichimura theatre.
    Publisher Kagaya Yasubei, date seal 10/1853, censor seals Fuku and Muramatsu.
