Shizuka-gozen, circa 1845 - Lovely portrait of Shikuza-gozen, a dancer who became the mistress of the famous warrior Minamoto no Yoshitsune. She smiles sweetly as she looks over her shoulder, holding one sleeve to her chest. She wears a blue kimono patterned with pink blossoms over a red under robe, tied with a black obi. Rows of softly shaded clouds in violet and orange run across the background. A beautiful design. The first time we've offered a subject from this rarely seen Kuniyoshi beauty series.
