Displaying a voluminous kimono with the outer layer thrown back over one shoulder, this courtesan has the majestic bearing characteristic of paintings and prints by artists of the Kaigetsudo school. Although the works by the artists associated with this group tend to share a formulaic approach to composition, the garment's detail in this painting reveals the subtle touch of a master painter.
