Comments - Intriguing print depicting dances for "hauta," short love songs that were popular during the Edo era. The man in the foreground strikes a pose with a fan in his extended hand, looking up over his shoulder with a slight frown. He wears a dark blue kimono with a bold tie-dyed pattern, tied with a brown obi that reverses to a red print. Small figures above demonstrate various dance steps, each accompanied by instructions. An unusual and interesting design with soft shading in the background.
