An uki-e (perspective print) signed Kitagawa Utamaro ga, titled 'Shinpan Uki-e Kinryűzan Ni˘mon no zu' (新版浮絵金龍山二王門之図 - Newly-published perspective picture, Ni˘mon gate at Kinryűzan temple), published by Yamaguchiya T˘bei.
MRAH Brussels attributes the print to Utamaro II but the same print is attributed to Utamaro I in the Ritsumeikan database.
Yamaguchiya T˘bei started his business early Bunka (ca. 1804-1806) and commissioned both Utamaro I and II.

I tend to think that this print was indeed designed by Utamaro II during the 1810s. What's your opinion?
