I concur. I'm not an expert on these early artists, but going by the shapes
of the women's faces I'd say it's definitely pre-1780, and almost certainly
pre-1750.

> Artist: definitely by Sukenobu (if I might say so)

Hmm. I suppose; I was going to say it looks a bit too polished (e.g. in the
detail of the robes) to be that early, but I suppose you might be right. The
detail of the wood-grain in the panel is almost identical to that in some
other Sukenobu prints.
