Description: This print is also known under the English title "Hanaogi of the Ogiya Teahouse at Edo-cho Itchome", and is from a series by Utamaro comparing courtesans with flowers.

The print shows the head-and-shoulders of one of the most famous courtesans of the Edo period, Hanaogi, who holds a scroll and chews on the end of a brush. It appears that, in this print, Hanaogi is being compared to the Chinese peony (shakuyaku).

This particular print is a mid-1970s reproduction by the Takamizawa Company.

There are a few slight foxing spots on the face and the hair accessories.
