Waitress with an Oil Lamp by Eizan (1787 - 1867)

Original Eizan (1787 - 1867) Japanese Woodblock Print
Waitress with an Oil Lamp

Comments - Beautiful kakemono or vertical diptych of a young waitress holding a small oil lamp. She eyes the flame carefully, shielding it from drafts with her kimono sleeve. She wears a gray plaid kimono, a brown print tied around her waist and a towel draped over one arm. Her hair is pulled back into a sleek bun, adorned with a small comb and a decorative hairpin. A blue and white porcelain cup sits on a bench behind her, and a lantern painted with kanji characters hangs at upper right. A beautiful composition with curving lines leading the eye through the image, with wonderful detail. A lovely example of Eizan's beauty prints.

Artist - Eizan (1787 - 1867)
Image Size - 27 7/8" x 9"
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Two separate panels. Toning, slight soiling. Please see photos for details.
