Description: Some notes from the pamphlet included by the original publisher of this print:

"The artist, Eisui, imitated the style of Utamaro, as we can see in this piece. The amorous appeal of Takigawa (滝川), one of the most celebrated and beautiful courtesans, is portrayed with remarkable vividness, and it is as if she is competing with the beauty of the iris held in her hands. While the charming loveliness of her expression is skillfully represented, her clothing reveals inaccurate observations by the artist. This may show that his artistic ability is not flawless, but, at the same time, can be considered a characteristic of his art. The colour design exhibits Eisui's distinctive fresh sense."
