The Original silk screen painting by Kitagawa Utamaro has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $8500.00 -10,000.00 Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
