Description: This print is considered something of a masterpiece among Toyokuni's bijin-ga. He depicts a geisha commuting to a banquet room at night, escorted by a woman. The scenery is full of quaint atmosphere; the red light from the lantern spreading into the dark night is depicted in a method very unusual for the ukiyo-e era ... it almost seems more like a modern shin-hanga print.

This particular print is a post-war reproduction by Yamada Shoin. Printer: Hoshino / Carver: Koike


There is a slightly torn and distorted area on the upper right of this print. Please see the photos for details.
