As stated in Miles, "This print is notable for the use of strong lacquer pigments in the fan, and a contrasting pastel coloring of the main figure. The circular rubbing of the baren in the background is typical of Japanese woodblock prints of the period, but very untypical of Jacoulet, who preferred smooth expanses of color. - Miles; pg. 93
One of only seven designs completed by the publisher Junji Kato. Jacoulet did not supervise the impressions directly and this accounts in part for the similarity several show to the more popular Shinsui and Goyo. - Miles pg. 93
