Original Meiji era Japanese Woodblock Print
Courtesan in a Tiger Kimono
Comments - Attractive portrait of a courtesan strolling through the Yoshiwara. She wears a striking outer kimono with a tiger and a rushing river, tied with a robe obi decorated with phoenixes in flight. A couple walks along behind her, the man wearing a Western coat and hat. Blossoming cherry trees fill the garden in the center of the boulevard. A handsome design.
