Description: This print is from a set "Beauties by Three Great Artists" which consists of 20 reproduction prints by three major beauties designers of the Edo period: Hiroshige, Kunisada, and Eisen, published by Yuyudo in 1975.

This print depicts a very well-dressed woman, probably a geisha, because she is wearing a very elegant kimono. She is holding a traditional umbrella made of bamboo and paper. These parasols (wagasa) were used to protect middle-aged lords and their retinues in Japanese period dramas or by geishas.

In the left upper part, we can perceive a hand mirror containing the picnic lunch box for the Kanda Myojin Shrine.

The orange tones with some touches of blue dominate the palette of the print.
