The founder of the Katsukawa dynasty was Katsukawa Syunse, who devoted almost the entire life to a theatrical theme. Thanks to him, she sounded in full force of color, having mastered all the achievements of polychrome engraving. Each image of Sünse is unique. This is the central heroic roles, and lyrical female, played by the best actors.

In the compositions of Katsukawa Sünse we often meet a new form – a triptych, the appearance of which was connected with the desire to show not only one performer, but the entire basic composition of the characters. Sjunse closely approached the study of
