At the time of Goyo’s sudden death in February 1921 (at the age of 41) he left unpublished prints in various stages of production. For this design, Goyo had already hand-colored a keyblock proof (in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, accession no. 50.870), upon which he wrote the name Hisae, identifying a Shinbashi district geisha as the model. While ill, Goyo instructed his student Fujiki Kikumaro on how to proceed, and apparently the print was completed shortly after his death.
