Harunobu (1724 -1770) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Osen with a Fan Seller
Comments - Lovely reprint of the famous beauty and teahouse waitress Osen seated on a bench at her tea stand, holding a fan which bears the crest of the popular actor Segawa Kikunojo. Next to her, a man gestures at a rack holding fans for sale which also feature kabuki scenes or actor's crests. He wears a striped kimono and holds a pipe, a striped cloth tied over his head. An attractive design with soft color.
