Courtesans Oi (大井) and Koremitsu (?) of the Ebiya house (海老屋)

Identifier: 1804c Utamaro Oi Korimitsu
Description:

One of the courtesans is playing a shamisen while the other who is listening is holding a fan, upside down, which shows part of the crest of Ichikawa Danjūrō VII. Perhaps she was a fan of that young actor who took that name in 1800. Perhaps it is even a bit of an advertisement for him.
