The design comes from two closely-related early Utamaro series, "Fujin Sōgaku Jittai" and "Fujo Ninsō Juppin", c. 1792-1793. This design is "Uwaki no Sō" (浮気之相), "The Fickle Type" or "The Fancy-free Type".
For more on these series, see:
For an even deeper dive, I recommend the book "Utamaro and the Spectacle of Beauty" by Julie Nelson Davis.
