Original Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) Japanese Woodblock Print
Enjoying herself: the appearance of a teacher of the Kaei era, No. 20
Series; Thirty-Two Aspects of Women
Enjoying herself: the appearance of a teacher of the Kaei era, No. 20 - A lovely music teacher is shown playing the shamisen, an instrument associated with the profession of geisha. Possibly a retired geisha herself, she would have been charged with teaching the geisha to play this beautiful stringed instrument. It is wintertime, and as Japanese houses were drafty, she is shown wearing several heavy layers of kimono and a lavender scarf about her neck. A lovely, charming print and an excellent design from Yoshitoshi's Women series.
