Original Kunisada II (1823 - 1880) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty with a Folding Fan Kakemono, 1867
Comments - Charming kakemono or vertical diptych of a beauty enjoying a stroll, carrying a folded fan in one hand as she lifts the edge of her robe with the other. Her blue kimono is bordered with swirling waves, tied with a golden yellow patterned obi. She wears wooden geta clogs, and her hair is pulled back into a sleek bun adorned with a comb, hairpins, and a red ribbon. The scene behind her shows willow branches above a bridge framing a view of a full moon, with misty clouds drifting across the evening sky. A handsome design with wonderful detail.
