Disagreeable: the appearance of a young lady from Nagoya during the Ansei era, No. 23 - The Japanese title for this print implies that this young lady is spoiled and from a wealthy household. She raises her hand in a manner that could be interpreted as either spiteful or teasing, toying with an admirer. She wears beautifully colored kimono of the highest quality, the outer robe patterned with "snow circles," perhaps suggesting a cold heart. Her pouty mouth is painted with lipstick, and her hair is arranged in an elaborate parted peach style that was popular among rich young girls of her era. An excellent lithograph edition of this famous design.
