Notes: This print belongs to a series of 10 Prints called the "Pride of Edo". This set is comparing the famous places of Edo to the women of the area. Many show a clear debt to Utamaro. In the more original designs, however, Kunisada conveys a mood and a sympathy for his subject that are unique to his work of this period. Very rare original print.
