Abuna-e refers to suggestive and sensual images, a substratum of the more explicit shunga [lit. spring pictures]. In Japan, the late eighteenth century saw such imagery banned under new laws, forcing artists who still desired to produce them to leave their works unsigned. Although these designs may appear rather innocuous, some contemporaries considered abuna-e more erotically charged due to their workings on the imagination. As a successor of Utamaro Kitagawa's style, Eizan continued the portrayal of an idealised female beauty whilst infusing it with own character. Eizan's courtesan seductively smokes her kiseru pipe as she rests herself on her client. A thick kakebuton just about covers them, lending warmth and further intimacy to the scene. Despite the contrasting interplay of patterns and fabrics, Eizan's design is markedly composed, finding balance in the simplicity of line and form.
