My father brought these back from travels in the 1960s – there are also three Kuniyoshi’s that I could identify. Anyone one able to share info?
The first likely says/refers to Arashi Kichisaburo.

    The right print is by Kunisada I, signing "Gototei Kunisada ga". It's the left sheet of a kabuki triptych. Depicted is the actor Arashi Kichisaburō III. The role name could be Sajirō (佐次郎). Play is unidentified; publisher Daikokuya Heikichi; date c. 1840.
