I found the crib-piece waiting for garbage pick-up on the curb of a nearby street.  It was perfect to represent the lattice work for a Japanese building.  The woman is a courtesan in the Yoshiwara (a district set aside by the Tokugawa Shogunate for legal prostitution) in the city of Edo (now Tokyo).  She is looking out the window on summer's evening at the moon's reflection on the Sumida River.  A haiku on the back of the canvas says:
   Edo's moon struts by
   Fireflies sprint on breezes near
   The cool Sumida
