Courtesan Usugumo A3 Print

Portrait of the courtesan Usugumo by the artist Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1753-1806). The Japanese word for the highest ranked courtesan is "oiran". It is debated how this name came about, but one theory comes from how the girls working for them would call them "oira no tokoro no nee-san", which shortened became a word "oiran". The sentence translates as "the older sisters of our place." Produced by Ezen designs in their London studio
