Nakayama Tomisaburō I standing next to Matsumoto Koshirō V, Ichikawa Danjurō VII in makeup and Onoe Eizaburō I seated and holding a scroll - this is the left panel of a triptych entitled Edo shibai sangai no zu (The 3rd Floor of an Edo Theater - 江戸芝居三階之図)

Identifier: 1802-03 Toyokuni Kabuki 4

A curator at the British Museum wrote: "The scene is imaginary since these actors did not appear together at the same theatre during this time. The style of the artist’s signature supports this date range."

British Museum has complete triptych
