You can tell that Koryusai was a student from Harunobu, as the style is very similar. His early work was also in the Chuban format, as Harunobu. However, from 1776, until 1782, Koryusai started the new Oban size format for his prints. A similar print is referenced by the Minneapolis Institute of Art HERE
Pictures: Pictures are taken outdoor, in the shade, to reflect true colors, without any enhancements of any kind. The last picture is taken indoor, with a light behind the print, to reveal the exact paper grain, holes if any, or other possible flaws.
