Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty with a Shamisen
Comments - Attractive scene of a beauty playing the shamisen, smiling as she looks over her shoulder at her companion. Both women wear solid-color kimono tied with patterned obi, and each has a purse wrapped in a roll of tissues tucked into her obi. A square inset above shows a sign hanging at the corner of a building, with a verse in a green cartouche at left. A handsome composition with nice color.
