Original Kuniteru II (1829 - 1874) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty in Front of a Teahouse
Comments - Attractive portrait of a beauty holding a round fan patterned with a pine tree. She wears a blue outer kimono patterned with curving grasses, trimmed with a red tie-dyed collar. Her hair is pulled back into a sleek bun adorned with many hairpins, and she smiles slightly as she looks over her shoulder. The inset behind her shows a teahouse with guests arriving and tasseled lanterns hanging from the eaves above the upper story. Nicely colored with fine detail in the hair and the architectural setting.
