Information about author
The ukiyo-e print on the left shows a woman dressed in a multi-embroidered kimono with an obi sash. A samurai wearing a straw kasa hat and a guy armed with a spear approach her. Both are dressed in traditional montsuki haori hakama costumes. The meeting takes place against a seascape, with mountains in the distance.
In the top right corner a calligraphic inscription in a cartouche and a serial number "26". Bottom left author's signature, censors' and publisher's stamps.
