    The artist is Kunisada I, here signing "Toyokuni ga". It's the right sheet of a kabuki diptych. Depicted is Arashi Rikan III (name not named on the print) as riyōshi Musashi (りやうし武蔵) in the play "Azuma kudari gojūsan tsugi", performed at the Kawarazaki theatre, Edo. Publisher is Tsujiya Yasubei, date 7/1854 and carver seal "hori ko Shōji".

    Thank you very much - I really appreciate this! Would you possibly also have information for the left sheet? I realise that I have this in the same folio.

    Left is Ichikawa Kodanji IV as Hōzan (?) jitsuha [= actually]] Tenjitsubō (宝山実ハ天日坊).
