Note: Most of these artists are known matchbook cover/
adveritsing label artists.  In light of the title cartouche, it
is possible that this is the first panel of a triptych that
cumulatively contains 36 actor portraits.  The seal on
this print is the same as one found on two woodblock
printed postcards that resemble two 1925 prints by
Miyake Hanayama, and is likely a publisher seal.
