Description: This pair of prints are from the "12 Months of Modern Beauties" series, consisting of 12 pairs. It was originally produced in 1822 by the publisher Ibasen as a multicolor printed fan print. The items here are reproductions published by Yuyudo in 1975. Fan prints are often on one side, but this series is unique -  the design of the front and back sides of the fan are fused together, and part of the figures are overlapped on both sides to create the illusion of three-dimensionality when you spin the fan around and around.

Each pair depicts a month of the modern lifestyle of a woman and this pair depicts the sixth of the lunar month, a woman is doing her beauty routine in front of a black lacquer dressing table while holding a mirror that shows the reflection of the back of her neck.
