Edo Period Japanese woodblock print triptych by Kunisada (also known as Toyokuni III) depicting actors portraying a scene from the kabuki theater published by Maruya Jinpachi between 1849-1851. Each panel bears the signature "Toyokuni ga" in a red cartouche with yellow snow, a publisher's seal, and double censor's seals. Each panel measures about 13 1/4" x 9 1/2” to 9 3/4." Very good color and overall condition. The three panels are joined and there are vestiges of Japanese paper backing to part of the reverse side. There are signs of wear, rubbing, and old repairs to the bottom of the panels. The paper is somewhat wrinkled.
