Hello,

I would like some information about this print. I bought it in the 1980’s from a friend of my mom. I Google searched and it’s in the database but the information is in Japanese. The print seems to have some sort of texture on the black background. The back looks odd also. Thanks

    The print shows actor 市川権十郎 Ichikawa Gonjūrō as 小松屋宗七 Komatsuya Sōshichi

    The actor 市川団十郎 Ichikawa Danjūrō as 毛剃九右衛門  Kezori Kyūemon is on the middle panel.

      Thanks for the information. As I was cleaning the closet where I had the framed prints, I rediscovered this unframed piece. I am puzzled by the look of the back. Do you know why part is darker than the rest?
