The celebrated master Hiroshige, one of the leading designers of landscape prints, was particularly skilled at conveying the season, weather and time of day. In this print a white cat, outlined in the kimedashi embossing technique, watches a procession from the windowsill of a tea house and represents the courtesan who has just finished her work.
