Thanks Noel,

I found out that the prints correspond with the designs of a shunga illustrated in a Belgium Catalogue (museum d'Ixelles, 1989). They are described as "School of Sukenobu" and dated about 1726 by Marco Fagioli.

Click here for an example

Ealier "(School of) Sukenobu" prints show slightly smaller persons with smaller heads. It's like Sukenobu zooms in on the scene and tries to get the spectator more closer at the end of his carrier. The heads of the depicted persons are somewhat rounder to.

His attention to designs on the robes has always been greater then his contemporaries. So the fact that you think that they look a bit too polished, affirms my believe that the master is Sukenobu himself.

Still have no clue about the title. And I hope to get more reference material.
