Hanging a Kimono, 1854 by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Hanging a Kimono, 1854

Comments - Lovely Edo era scene of two beauties in private quarters, one placing a kimono on a hanger suspended from the ceiling. She looks over her shoulder at her companion, who relaxes on the floor, cooling herself with a fan. She wears an intricately patterned tie-dyed blue and white cotton robe, one collar slipping off her shoulder. A large porcelain bowl nearby holds chunks of watermelon, a refreshing summer treat. Wonderful detail in the setting and household furnishings, with a planter holding staked dianthus flowers, other kimono hanging overhead, and a pile of hangers on the floor. Beautifully drawn and colored with soft shading in the background.
