I have inherited two Japanese woodblock prints. Both have hung in my mother’s apartment for as long as I can remember. I found the first picture here while searching. It is by Utagawa Toyokuni and dates from 1801.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find the second picture:

Can anyone here perhaps tell me something about this? Thank you!

    If anyone knows the artist or anything else about this print, I will be most grateful.

    Thank you
