A kabuki actor as Watōnai (和藤内)

Identifier: 1859c Hironobu onoe shogokyu
Description:

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.
