An actor in street attire standing in front of a row of shops and tea houses by Osaka artist Sadahiro (active 1830-1851) dating circa 1845. A pupil of Kunisada, Sadahiro's woodblock prints were published in Osaka in the 1830's and 1840's. The seal of the publisher Iseya Sensaburo appears on the actor's head. The artist's signature is in black ink at the lower left. Exceptional color and impression with lacquer highlights on the edge of the inner kimono and mica in the background. Chuban-sized print. Margins are evident but are small on the top and bottom. Paper measures about 9 1/2"V x 7 1/8"H (image size: 9 3/8"V x 6 5/8"H). Excellent overall condition. Japanese mulberry paper album backing. A tape stain is on the back at the upper right corner.
