Comments - Lovely kakemono or vertical diptych of a beauty wearing an interesting kimono with an alternating pattern of bats in flight and clusters of three gourds against a finely striped ground. Her green floral brocade obi reverses to pink, and she stands barefoot, looking ahead with a rather dismayed expression, her mouth slightly open. Her hair is pulled back into a large smooth bun, adorned with a large comb and a few decorative hairpins. A charming design, nicely detailed.
