Il s'agit ici de l'acteur Onoe Kikujiro II probablement dans le rôle d'Ousaka. Utagawa Kunisada (ou Toyokuni III ou Gototei ou Kochoro) (1786 -1864) fut l'élève de Toyokuni I dont il prit le nom en 1844. Il est considéré comme l'un des meilleurs portraitistes d'acteurs Kabuki de son temps. Il gagna la faveur populaire par ses estampes de la vie quotidienne où règne la femme aimable, souvent d'une élégance affectée. Dans sa production se reflètent les coutumes et prédilections de la fin de l'époque Edo. Belles couleurs et belle impression. Quelques petites piqures.
