Bust portrait of an unidentified actor in the role of a half-naked samurai from a series titled "Mirror of Good and Evil Spirits" by Toyohara Kunichika (1835-1900), published by Tsunoi in 4/1868. Paper size: 14"V x 9 3/8"H. The print is a fine impression with excellent color. The wood grain is plainly evident in the background and there are mica highlights. The left margin is trimmed.
