A print like this one is listed in Allen Hockley's The Prints of Isoda Koryūsai: Floating World Culture and its Consumers in the Eighteenth-Century Japan, p. 249, p. E-2. However, the print in the Lyon Collection shows the woman's genitalia.
Andreas Marks does not list Koryūsai as one of the artists published by Matsumura Yahei, but we are confident of this attribution.
