Original Ginko (active 1874 - 1897) Japanese Woodblock Print
Entertaining an Elderly Woman
Comments - Comic scene of a musician entertaining an elderly woman, playing a rhythm on a hand drum perched on his shoulder as she grins back at him. A beauty peers over the top of a screen at left, while the man at right laughs heartily at his companion's antics. The silhouettes of a beauty and a man drinking a cup of sake can be seen on the reed blind at the back of the room. Nice calligraphic line work.
