Original Chikanobu (1838 - 1912) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty Gathering Shellfish
Series; True Beauties
Beauty Gathering Shellfish - Lovely portrait of a beauty gathering shellfish, carrying a basket filled with clams. She smiles happily as she looks over her shoulder, the scarf draped over her head caught between her teeth to keep it from blowing away. The sleeves of her kimono are tied back with a cord, and her obi reverses from a black and peach stripe to an embossed red and white tie-dyed pattern. Beautifully detailed with delicate embossing on the scarf. A rarely seen Chikanobu series
