Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty and Dog
Comments - Interesting portrait of a beauty pausing beside a pillar to look down at a dog near her feet. She is wearing a kimono tucked into full pants, the latest attire of a modern young woman in the Meiji eras. Her black leather boots, cloth umbrella, and fingerless gloves are also adopted from Western fashion. Nicely detailed.
