A large-head portrait (okubi-e) of a dancing woman, executed in the otsu-e style (Japanese folk art style introduced in the 17th century).

Tsunetomi's style is quite unique and stands out favourably against such renowned masters of bijin-ga ('pictures of beautiful women') as Goyo and Shinsui. As he had not designed many prints, Tsunetomi's prints are quite rare.
