This card arrived in my collection entirely by accident - I found it inside a second-hand book I bought recently.  It was originally sent from Japan by a dutiful son to his mother.

The picture is one of Kitagawa Utamaro's woodblock prints.  He was a Japanese artist (1753-1806) and one of the most famous artists of the ukiyo-e tradition of prints.

I haven't been able to identify this one in spite of having trawled through 800+ images on
There were 3000+ of them so I know I didn't really get very far.
