YOSHIDA EISH (吉田永昇)

  Azuma Nishiki Yjtsu-kura (東錦妖術競) Senshafuda Series (1921)



Note: The prints in this series do not seem to have been based on
contemporaneous performances but rather imagine the leading
kabuki actors of the day in roles involving sorcerers, magicians,
magic spells, or physical transformations.   A few actors, however,
have played their roles on stage in prior productions.   The series
appears to have been inspired by Kunisada I's series "Toyokuni
Kig Kijutsu Kei" (豊国揮毫奇術競).
