|Title||Poetess in a Carriage|
|Description||Eishi mainly depicted full-length human figures in a refined manner. His ukiyo-e women are elegant and quiet, and like dolls, they are motionless. Their faces do not reveal their feelings, perhaps because Eishi was from a samurai family whose view of women was strongly influenced by the notion of the ideal woman. "Poetess in a Carriage" depicts a noble woman in her carriage dressed in 12th century style with long flowing hair; the two women to the left have Edo period costume and coiffures.|
