Ochie of the Koiseya at Kobikicho, Shin-yashiki - Wonderful, classic Utamaro head and shoulders portrait of the famous young beauty Ochie reading a woodblock print book. She smiles happily as she examines the pictures, her open lips revealing tiny even teeth. A lovely design with fine line work in the hair and a soft shimmering mica background.
