Impression: VG, solid keylines, good registration, surface texture, and very finely executed bokashi treatments of the kimono and hair comb that are ordinarily omitted in lesser quality prints. Also of note is the very fine carving of the hair along the hairline (see enlargements below)

Documentation: Listed as #21 in The Surviving Works of Sharaku, 1939, Ledoux

This portrait of the female impersonator Osagawa Tsuneyo II is one of Sharaku's lesser known portraits of kabuki actors made during Sharaku's mercurial career as a woodblock print designer in 1794-5, after which he was never heard from again. Much speculation exists as to whom Sharaku was, including that he was actually Utamaro working under another name, however, to date little is known about this most talented of all ukiyo-e actor portraitists.

Tsuneyo is shown in the role of the Ayame, the wife of Sadanoshin and the mother of Shigenoi, from the play Koinyobo Somewake Tazuna (The Loved wife's Parti-colored Leading-Rope).
