Title Yoshishi Meishiden Muramatsu Santayu. Condition: Stains and rubs. Size: 24 x 36 cm. His aliases include Hanacho-rou, Ichiiyinsai, and Toyoharu-rou.

He produced many yakusha oshibu-e (large head paintings of actors) and demonstrated his ability. In his later years, he produced many portraits of actors in the traditional style, often depicting a half of an actor standing alone on a series of three panels. The portrayal of facial features is characteristic of the Hagoita style.
