"I do think it is by utamaro ... Can anyone help?"
I quickly flipped through my set of "Ukiyo-E Shunga Meihin (The Complete Ukiyo-E Shunga)" but didn't see it - although I didn't take time to look at all the small B+W illustrations in the writeups, that would have taken forever - but didn't see it (although perhaps in my haste I missed a page).
Looking at it, though, I doubt it's by Utamaro - not really his style (his faces are more idealized than these). Maybe Hokusai (remember the famous image of the diving-girl and the octopus)?
