Explanation

From the inscription she is carrying, we know that this is the famous courtesan from the Yoshiwara district named “Katsuyama”. This work supremely captures her on a pilgrimage, with her expression depicted sensitively and serene color schemes from her clothing, underscoring the fine skills of the artist.
