Label Text:
A large-format picture of beautiful women ('ōban bijinga'), this print comes from one of Eizan's earliest series. The series title, 'Modern style cloth dye,' ('Tōsei zoku isen') is printed vertically descending at upper-right, within a yellow cartouche. To the left of the figures are the censor's seal, enclosed in a circle, the artist's signature, 'Eizan hitsu' ('drawn by Eizan') written vertically decending, and an unidentified publisher's mark.
