A fine Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock print depicting an actor of Kabuki theater. Utagawa Kunisada, also known as Utagawa Toyokuni III, was the most popular, prolific and commercially successful designer of ukiyo-ewoodblock prints in 19th-century Japan. In his own time, his reputation far exceeded that of his contemporaries, Hokusai, Hiroshige and Kuniyoshi. The Mera-Murata censors were active from 1847 to 1852.
