My Shotei variants page ( http://shotei.com/artists/shotei/copies/copies.htm ) contains many examples.
For those readers who haven't seen our previous discussion, MagicSteph asserts that what I call plagiarized versions of Shotei's prints are in fact the result of Shotei himself collaborating with publishers other than Watanabe. I believe that this is not true. He's been quite insistent about this. In fact, MagicSteph has been selling what I believe to be derivative knockoffs on ebay, attributing them as original Shotei prints. See http://www.ebay.com/itm/Boat-Party-by-Moonlight-Hiroaki-Shotei-ORIGINAL-Woodblock-Print-/322192590841 .
