Sharaku is one of the greatest mysteries of art history. He popped out of nowhere, created some 140 designs, mostly bust portraits of kabuki actors, and then disappeared from the scene.
The original piece was created around 1794-95. This re-carved edition was made in the 20th century.
This work bears the artist's signature, "Toshusai Sharaku."
