Five Poetic Immortals of the Pear-blossom Courtyard - Lovely portrait from a series pairing beauties with the five female poets included among Japan's famous "Thirty-six Immortal Poets."

Each attractive design features an elegantly dressed beauty in a scene from daily life, with a yellow border of clouds across the top and two small insets with a verse by the poet and a small landscape view. A rarely seen Kunisada beauty series.
