an untitled set of actors with poem

 

new pictures: 03/18/20

 

new information: 01/15/21

A set of half-length actor portraits with poem. The still-lifes in the top of the prints were designed by Gengyo Miyagi (in most cases). All prints are published by Kagiya Shōbei.

Many thanks to Jeff Hopewell who added lots of information in 02/2020.

Almost all of the prints are based on actual performances of the years 1861 and 1862; few of them seem to be "mitate" prints, meaning that the actors in the depicted roles are imagined and not really performed in a specific play.

Jeff also found out that six of the prints use the "nanajūkyū-sai Toyokuni hitsu" signature from 1864 but the date seals on the prints are for 1/1862. Possibly the prints were designed in 1862 but only issued in 1864.
But it is also possible that with the turn of the year and the associated change in the signature of Kunisada, the woodblock carver or also the student of Kunisada, who made the final drawings, committed a simple spelling mistake and thus accidentally made a "七 十七 歳" (for 77 years old) became a "七 十九 歳" (for 79 years old). Or just a wrong counting of years of life by whoever.
The puzzle cannot be solved.

Most probably after finishing the greatest part of the series an other version was published depicting each four/three of the original prints on one ōban sheet.
For this series the MfA Boston writes: "Each yotsugiri image is based on a full-sized ˘ban print by Kunisada; it is not clear whether the miniature version was designed by Kunisada himself or someone copying him."
The publisher of these prints also was Kagiya Shōbei as could be seen on the three actor sheet but have neither a date seal nor an artist signature. For these prints look at the bottom of the list.

 Prints are ordered by date and play.
