Hello,

I attempted to search an image of a print I have, but it was not found in the database.  Does anyone know anything about this print, such as artist, title, and when it was made?  The image can be viewed here:  https://data.ukiyo-e.org/uploads/images/61524464e29e4614219f2eafac5b983d.jpg

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance!

Peter

    The artist is Utagawa Yoshiiku, signing "Yoshiiku ga (芳幾画)". It's the right sheet of a kabuki triptych.
    Title top right "Sumidagawa ukiyo no kagami" (隅田川浮世の鏡 - すみだがわうきよのすがたみ).
    Depicted are the actors (from left) Kawarazaki Gonjūrō I (河原崎権十郎) and Onoe Kakunosuke  (尾上覚之助); roles names unread.
    The play is "Sumidagawa ukiyo no kagami", performed at the Nakamura Theatre, Edo.
    Date seal: boar 7 (亥七) (= c. 7/1863); carver seal: Katada hori Chō (= Katada Chōjirō); publisher Yamamotoya Heikichi
