Toshikata (1866 - 1908) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauty with Umbrella Kuchi-e Print
Comments - Attractive kuchi-e or book frontispiece design of a young beauty enjoying a stroll accompanied by an older woman holding an umbrella. She pauses before a stone lion rendered in soft shades of gray, holding her fan as she looks over her shoulder. Fine delicate burnished line work in the beauty's hair and to delineate the umbrella ribs. A lovely image with a striking composition, in a nice large format reprint.
