Note: It is unclear if this is a woodblock print, a watercolor
drawing, or a hand-colored keyblock print for an
unpublished design.  Baik˘ VI died on November
8, 1934 at age 65.  He first played the role of Togakushi
no Kijo in this play in Tokyo at the Kabuki-za in June 1903.
Although Baik˘ VI's final Tokyo appearance in this role
was in October 1933, it is possible that Gak˘ based this
print on one of Baik˘ VI's prior performances.
