Hello Once Again,
This is the 2nd-to-last woodblock I would like to catalog before moving on to Japanese art in the round. As with the Kunisada, I have *some* knowledge of the print, i.e., I know it is from Vol. 2 of Hokusai's Toto Shokei Ichiran and the date it was published.
The subject is obviously kabuki theater, however my efforts to turn up any additional information on this specific print, and in particular, the poem inscribed on the print, have come up empty.
I once again thank (the collective) you in advance for any assistance you might be able to provide to help me better understand the subject as well as the inscription, both which would be warmly appreciated.
