Restaurant at Shin-Yanagibashi, 1870 - Charming portrait of the geisha Masu of Yanagibashi preparing to board a boat, lifting the edge of her robe as she leans forward. She smiles happily, showing tiny even white teeth, her hair pulled back into a smooth loop adorned with a comb and hairpins. At upper right, a servant holds a tobacco set in a wooden box. The inset above depicts a blue and white sake bottle next to a basin of water. The background features a red tie-dyed textile pattern above with a leaf design below. The first time we've seen this attractive design.
