Beauty with an Umbrella in the Snow Kakemono

Comments - Lovely woodblock kakemono or vertical diptych of a beauty strolling through the falling snow under an umbrella. The woman lifts the hem of her robe as she walks, looking down with a rather distraught expression. Her kimono features red stripes alternating with blue-green and white blocks, trimmed with a print of flowers and leaves. She wears tall wooden geta clogs and her red floral under robe is visible above her feet. Her hair is pulled back into a sleek bun, adorned with a large comb and several decorative hairpins. A classic Eisen beauty design.
