Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty with a Lantern, 1847 - 1852
Comments - Interesting image of a beauty carrying a paper lantern, shielding the light with her sleeves. She looks over her should with a rather dismayed expression, a loose wisp of hair framing her face. She appears to have dressed quickly, her kimono trailing on the floor around her and her obi loosely fastened around her waist. An expressive figure, nicely detailed with fine line work in the hair.
