A kabuki actor as Watōnai (和藤内)

Identifier: 1859c Hironobu onoe shogokyu

Only source on the internet has identified this actor as Onoe Shogyoku, an actor we have been unable to find so far anywhere else.

Possibly from the rare set: "A Comparison of Various Pictures". The first edition was deluxe with tons of metallic inking. Waseda University identifies another print from this series as being from Hana kurabe nishiki no utsushi-e (華競錦写絵). The Japan Arts Council says this dates from the 5/1865.
