Pardon a beginner's question, but I've recently acquired an Utamaro triptych, "Leave of the Beauty Before Driving." Each panel has a Kiemon seal but no censor seals. From the condition and the price I paid for it I'm assuming that it's one of the late Meiji or early 20th c reproductions, but would like to be certain of that. It may take a while to get it either appraised or scanned properly, so can anyone give me an idea of what I should be looking for? I've been having trouble finding a good example image for keyblock or any other comparison. Is there a good reference book for this?
