The Amused Type: Sumida River
Series; Twelve Views of Modern Women
The Amused Type: Sumida River - Charming portrait of a beauty playing a hand game called ken. She smiles happily as she gestures with both hands. She wears a plaid kimono is soft colors, the white lines delicately embossed, a roll of tissues and a pick for playing the shamisen tacked into her obi. An inset at upper left takes the form of a scroll unrolling, showing a view of boats along the Sumida River. An attractive image with a dusting of shimmering mica in the background.
