November: Dressing - Lovely scene of attendants helping a beauty to dress as she stands before full-length mirror atop a red lacquer dressing table. She stands quietly, holding her long sleeves out of the way as a woman kneels behind her, tying a lavender print obi behind her back. At right, a young girl sits on the floor, carefully folding a delicately embossed white robe. She smiles as she looks back over her shoulder, dressed in a blue kimono bordered with a design of origami cranes and bamboo. Other kimono and obi hang from a black lacquer frame at right, including a sash patterned with blossoms and a white robe with an embossed diamond pattern. A charming subject, nicely detailed with burnishing on the hair.
