In his depiction of courtesans, widows, and mothers and children, Utamaro consistently portrayed an idealized form of feminine beauty with an elongated face and sharp profile. In this woodblock print, a young courtesan (geisha), indicated by her elaborate robe and hairstyle, demurely conceals her expression by covering her mouth with her hand, which is made visible through the delicately translucent sleeve of her robe.
