No other copy of this print has been uploaded to Ukiyo-e Search. I was told that, despite the Hokusai signature, the print is actually by Taito II. My question about this print (and about a print with the subject of sparrows and arrowheads I will be uploading shortly) is whether Taito II copied a painting or drawing of Hokusai's (or whether perhaps the print is a joint production, designed by Hokusai and executed by Taito II). Can anyone answer this question or provide any other information about this print? Note this print is probably original and in very poor, faded and toned condition. It is a surimono-like production with embossing and metallic powder in some of the inks. Thank you very much.
