No other master of ukiyo-e devoted himself so consistently and with such success tot he portrayal of beautiful women as did Utamaro. Outstanding examples of his work are his master portraits of famous courtesans of Yoshiwara. These pictures reveal graceful ladies, with elaborate garments. Utamaro used bright, fresh colours, often on a mica-dust background. with children, courtesans from the pleasure district, and pairs of lovers.

This print shows a courtesan of the time walking with her young attendants. Her rich and elaborate kimono is in centre focus, amplifying her grandeur and status.
