About this artwork
As she sits on a bench smoking, a young woman is shocked to see a vision of a courtesan appear in the smoke.
This work is also a calendar print for the year 1765; the long months appear in the curly-cue pattern on her robe. The print bears no signature, though it has been attributed to Harunobu, as have many unsigned egoyomi of the period.
