Courtesans at Leisure, 1869 by Yoshiiku (1833 - 1904)

Original Yoshiiku (1833 - 1904) Japanese Woodblock Print
Courtesans at Leisure, 1869

Comments - Terrific peek inside a Yoshiwara teahouse at courtesans enjoying a moment of leisure. At lower right, a beauty wearing a black outer kimono patterned with egrets sit on the red floral carpet, smiling happily as she looks up. In the center, a woman with a striking outer robe patterned with lions and a waterfall gestures with her hand. The only man in the scene stands on the verandah at right in a blue kimono, looking out over the garden. Wonderful detail in the architectural setting and the elegant clothing and furnishings, including burnishing on the black kimono and obi and embossing on the white kimono collars. A charming subject.
