Gwynn,

A very good find by Lucienne!

The complete triptych is also represented in the website of MFA (see https://collections.mfa.org/objects/461331), with the title "Yayoi no yozakura" (弥生之夜桜 - "Cherry Blossoms at Night in the Third Month"). The censor's seals appear to be Mera and Murata, a combination that was used about 1847-1850.

Your print was probably published a little later, using the same woodblocks as the left panel of the triptych and after the four men in the background had been erased.

Best regards,
Hans Olof
