Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty with an Umbrella Kakemono
Comments - Lovely kakemono or vertical diptych of a beauty strolling with an umbrella in hand. She looks over her shoulder with a slight smile, her tongue just visible. She wears a checked kimono tied with a green geometric print obi, and tall geta clogs with spotted straps. Her hair is pulled back into two knots, adorned with a comb, and two hairpins, one decorated with a gourd and the other with an intricate floral medallion with beaded fringe. A charming image, also in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
