Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty Playing the Shamisen
Comments - Charming portrait of a beauty playing the shamisen, looking down with a smile as she concentrates on the music. A young girl kneels before her, leaning forward with a covered dish in her hand. Beyond the verandah railing, blossoming cherry trees frame the evening sky. An attractive design, detailed with embossing on the white kimono collar.
