Utamaro’s Courtesan Hisui from Ogiya (c. 1798) presents a pair of elegant courtesans. Hair heavy with pins, Hisui and her companion unfurl the rolled paper to admire a floral pattern, perhaps a gift from an admirer. In Hiragana beside the courtesan’s name, Utamaro identifies Hisui’s kamuro (child attendants) as Iroha and Someha, though they are not pictured. This impression was featured in the article “Japanese Reverie” published in Art & Antiques (The Americas Edition) in September 2015. Another impression of this design can be found in the permanent collection of the Ota Memorial Museum in Tokyo.
