Description: This is one print from Gekko's twenty-four print "Comparison of Beautiful Women and Flowers" series. In this particular print, a beauty battles strong rain and winds, clutching her umbrella.

The title box of the print has been blind-embossed with a floral pattern, and metallic pigments have been used to bring out certain sections of the beauty's kimono. A particularly interesting feature of the print is that the artist has evidently instructed the rain to be blind-embossed instead of printed with coloured pigments.

There is a stamp to the upper margin of the print, and a few small marks. The left margin may have been slightly trimmed, and there is a light stain along the lower section of the print.
