Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty with an Umbrella
Comments - Handsome kabuki portrait of a beauty holding an umbrella, smiling as she looks back over her shoulder. With her other hand she lifts the edge of her black kimono, with is beautifully detailed with a burnished geometric pattern. A title cartouche takes the form of a sign board at upper right, with open and closed books beside it with text. Yellow blossoms border the red background across the top. An attractive design, nicely detailed with embossing on the white kimono collar and trim.
