    The artist is Utagawa Kunisada I, here signing "Gototei Kunisada ga".
    The print is part of a kabuki multisheet composition (diptych or triptych).
    Depicted is the actor Arashi Kichisaburō III as Umeomaru (梅王丸) in the play "Sugawara denju tenarai kagami", performed at the Morita theatre, Edo, in 9/1840.
    Publisher is Izumiya Ichibei.
