Praise for Multi-colored Blossoms - Chikanobu's lovely series "Praise for Multi-colored Blossoms" presents portraits of famous geisha and courtesans from various teahouses. The "multi-colored blossoms" of the title refers to the women, who are shown relaxing in their spare time, enjoying gardens, arriving or leaving, or taking part in seasonal and daily activities. The settings and elegant fabrics are beautifully detailed and vibrantly colored. A band across the top features a scene with a fan-shaped inset at right identifying the subject.
