Subject:JAPANESE WOODBLOCK PRINT - NEED HELP TO IDENTIFY
Posted By: Skippy Tue, Jun 05, 2018 IP: 2600:1700:9981:47b0:

This Japanese woodblock print shows a traditional Japanese hot springs bath. There are three signature areas. Any help with identification or translation would be greatly appreciated.

It's a depiction of the NakamanjirĂ´ bathhouse in Tokyo, designed by Utagawa Kunisada II (1823-1880) published by Sumiyoshiya MasagorĂ´, 1st month of Meiji 2 (1869).

Your print seems to be a reproduction; the original edition was a triptych.

This is a repro of a triptych by Kunisada 2 (hence the 3 signatures). Since yours appears to be all one sheet, there is no question about it's (lack of) authenticity.

See link below for more info.

Cheers,
