Description: This is one of Eisen's excellent series of beautiful women paintings, 'Imayou Mime Kurabe' (Competition Among Today's Beautiful Women). The artist has marked the character 泉 (izumi) and various types of women in a circle, and depicted the corresponding women in the painting.

This print captures well the movement of the woman at the teahouse, holding a tray in her right hand and a package of face powder in her left. This is almost certainly an Edo-era example of 'product placement' ...

This particular print is a post-war reproduction by Yamada Shoin. Printer: Hoshino / Carver: Ito (This is Mr. Susumu Ito, who deeply influenced Dave. The YouTube video featuring Ito-san became one of the most viewed on his channel ...)

There are a few slight spots on the woman's face of this print.
