Please help identify the artist of these 2 Japanese Woodblock prints

It is rather difficult to identify the artist of a print with no signature.

The first print is about the Gwangmu Reform in Korea, and the person in blue is probably Kim Hong-jip

The second one shows the actor Onoe Kikugoro in the role of Nagoya Sanzo. I would guess the artist is Kunichika.

That agrees with what I thought, except I thought it was Onoe Kikujiro IV. Likely, this is one page of a triptych with the signature on another page.

It is certainly Onoe Kikugoro V.

here is a picture of the name Onoe Kikujiro | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
