Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauties in the Street, 1852
Comments - Charming scene of three beauties in the street, the young woman at left closing a door behind her as she smiles at her companions. She carries a shallow wooden tub, and has a striped apron tied over her kimono. Her black kimono reverses to a red geometric pattern. Wooden slatted panels run across the background with blue curtains above. An interesting scene, nicely detailed.
