Description — Click to read

Very good impression and colour, in very good condition. The text of the inscription makes it possible to understand that it is a widow who converses with a young servant on the first floor of a tea house during the intermission of the first kabuki performance of the season. The reason I came to see the kabuki is because I wanted to enjoy your company. Nobody is more beautiful than you, the woman said. To which the young man replied: Madam, I appreciate your attentions, but could you be a little more silent? We could hear us downstairs. Another impression of the print was reproduced in the catalogue L’art de l’amour au temps des geishas, exhibition catalogue, Pinacothèque de Paris, 6 November 2014-15 February 2015.
