Thanks for the effort!
Noel: "I looked through the Asano/Clark Utamaro catalog (the best work I know of on him), but no luck. I did find a very similar print (#50, "Fishing at Iwaya, Enoshima") - it even has a boy with a crab! I didn't see it in the Hillier book on Utamaro either."
I think I also found that one in Edmond de Concourt: Utamaro on page 83 showing the boy and crab in the middle section. A image even closer to my print with the boy and crab is depicted in the same book on page 238-239 as a book illustration in a book called "at low tide (bei Ebbe) with illustrated Kyoka.
