This work is considered as the first painting by Kuroda after his stay in France. Maiko girl sitting on the bow window is depicted with bright surface of the Kamogawa river behind. The light comes from behind Maiko. The model was Koen of Ono-tei. The shallow water flow of the river seems like corresponding to Maiko’s mind.
