Label Text:
This print is signed at lower-left "Kunimori ga" ('drawn by Kunimori') and bears the circular kiwame seal of the censor and the mark of publisher Jōshūya Kinzō, the character "dai" beneath an overlapping double-peaked mountain, a seal that was only used in connection with the firm Daikokuya; typically the publisher used marks that referenced his own firm, Shōfukudō.

While the title of this print and its serialization are as-yet unconfirmed, Jōshūya Kinzō is known to have collaborated with Kunimori's teacher, Kuniyoshi, as well as his fellow acolytes of the master. This panel appears to belong to the same triptych as an orphan panel in the collections of Ritsumeikan University (acc. no. Z0172-635).
