Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty Returning from the Bath Kakemono, 1843 - 1845
Comments - Attractive kakemono or vertical diptych portrait of a beauty returning from the bath, a dark blue and white tie-dyed robe with Genji symbols on it tucked under her arm. She smiles as she looks back over her shoulder, drying the side of her face with a towel. She wears a blue kimono features swallows in flight and flowing water, tied with a brown print obi, and tall black geta clogs. Her hair pulled back into a smooth bun, simply adorned with a small lacquer comb and a hairpin. A charming Edo era beauty design with fine line work in the hair.
