Julius, Hans Olof, Plasmo!
The artist (Kiyochika) was a man, who draw a sketch with black ink. A carver made the keyblock from this. In it, the artist wrote signs for colours. He wrote red, blue or green. But he don't paint the red, blue or green. When the printer get the blocks, he tock this red, this blue and this green. And at the next time, he use another red, blue or green. He was an expert for colours. At the first time, the artist had a look on the colours. Later, he had not.
Woodgrain is not indicat a early print. A change of blocks can bring a frsh woodgrain in late prints.
What is with the prints in the response of Plasmo?
The first is: https://data.ukiyo-e.org/mia/images/80942.jpg
The second is: https://www.si.edu/object/fsg_S2003.8.1264
On the second, we miss the writings lower left. The signature change.
The writings on the right sheet are the same.
But what is with the blocks?
I can't see clearly enough, but I think, they are different.
Yours sincerely Gordon
