Courtesans in a Yoshiwara Teahouse, 1855 by Kunisada II (1823 - 1880)

Original Kunisada II (1823 - 1880) Japanese Woodblock Print
Courtesans in a Yoshiwara Teahouse, 1855

Comments - Lovely scene of courtesans at their leisure in a Yoshiwara teahouse. A beauty in the center holds a poem slip and brush in hand, an ink stone on the floor beside her, while her companion paints a folding fan. A young attendant sits nearby watching them, holding several branches covered with cherry blossoms. At left, a girl carries a decorated container, smiling happily up at the two beauties chatting. Wonderful detail in the architectural setting and elegant kimonos. A fantastic look at life in the Yoshiwara.
