Beauty Playing the Koto

Comments - Handsome image of a beauty playing the koto, looking up over her shoulder with a slightly wary flowers as she kneels over the instrument. She wears a light green kimono patterned with blossoms over a red under robe, tied with a gray print obi. Her hair is pulled back into a smooth bun, adorned with a pink cherry blossom print comb, ribbons, and hairpins decorated with a butterfly and cherry blossoms. A portrait of an actor as a beauty looking over her shoulder with appears as if reflected in a red lacquer sake cup at upper right, with a blossoming plum branch behind it. An attractive design.
