Original Miyagawa Shuntei (1873 - 1914) Japanese Woodblock Print
Styling Hair, 1897
Series; Customs and Manners, 1897 - 1898

Shuntei's Customs and Manners - Lovely design from Miyagawa Shuntei's 1897 - 1898 series depicting the "Customs and Manners" of women. Each print features beauties engaged in everyday activities, from admiring a view of the moon to strolling through a garden, styling the hair, or catching fireflies.
