Comments - Lovely kakemono or vertical diptych of Wakamurasaki of the Tamaya in Edo-machi 1-chome, smiling happily as she walks along on geta clogs with three "teeth," identifying her as an oiran or high-ranking courtesan. Her outer kimono features rust and white colored puppies, and her hair is adorned with many floral hairpins and combs. Please note, the signature Kuniyoshi has been falsely added in ink at lower right. The original design was unsigned, and it is not by Kuniyoshi.
