Original Meiji era Japanese Woodblock Print
December: Shamisen Player
Comments - Charming portrait of a beauty looking out a window in winter. She wears a heavy plaid outer kimono over an intricately patterned gray robe. The handle of a shamisen can be seen on the floor behind her. A nicely detailed design. This subject was also used for a calendar series printed in English.
