Young courtesan on horseback being assisted by a young man, possibly her lover - with Mt. Fuji looming in the background

Identifier: 1770c Koryusai Lovers

As a young man helps his courtesan down from riding a horse, his eye is drawn to her open kimono. Mt. Fuji in the distance.

There is a similar vertical diptych listed in Pins, #325, with a copy in the Art Institute in Chicago. In that one a large moon dominates the partially clouded night sky. Both that version and the one here carry the 'abbreviated' Koryƫsai signature - Koryƫ-ga. Theirs is dated ca. 1775.
