DescriptionTitle:"Figure Study of a Beautiful Entertainer". Signed by: Yeizan (Kikugawa) 1800-1829. Publisher's Seal: Arita-ya. It is commented that Yeizan's pictures of courtesans are not so good. They tend to become exaggerated, and over-loaded with design, and are the work of an artist who became a poor copyist, without much of his originality, one print being very like another. He took to copying Kunidada's full-length figures. His earlier designs are boldly drawn, graceful, and his colors are good. This picture looks like a "shinzo", ranked next to an "oiran". This is a "Kakemono".
