Lot Notes A courtesan enjoys the fragrance of incense from the small censercupped in her hand while her young kamuro (child assistant) opens apaper incense wrapper to prepare another scent. The unsigned proseinscription provides a window into the courtesan's melancholythoughts: kaze ni yanagi no mi wa makasho ka yo o ukikusa no koto o omou ni waraute kanashiki hi o kurashikane sumite ureshiki yo o oshimu rashi I wonder if my world is to be rootless like waterweeds, forever yielding, just as the willow gives way to wind, while I pass sorrowful days in laughter, and spend pleasureful nights embittered. Waterweeds (ukigusa) symbolize the fundamental instability ofpersonal relations, while the image of the wind-tossed willowrefers to the courtesan, who must yield to her patron'sadvances.
