Comments - Charming fan print of a young courtesan from the Shinagawa or Shinjuku, the curious beauty eagerly opening a fortune from a fortuneteller. The rich colors in the print contrast beautifully with the woman’s fair complexion, the area around her eyes softly shaded with pink. An attractive design.
